    Depends what year your P7 is from. Orange suggest an optimal length of 140mm with a minimum of 100 and a maximum of 140 for the latest one.

    I’ve got a P7 from a few years back (2004 maybe) where the recommended maximum was 130. I had 140 Pikes on and felt the difference but it didn’t ruin the bike. I can’t describe the difference but it just felt a little bit wrong.

    You’ll probably be fine with either 100 or 120 but given the choice I’d pick 120.

    I’d imagine a frame designed around a 140mm fork is going to be a bit twitchy with 100mm of travel. I had a 130mm Soul a few years ago, & that certainly was at 100mm. 120mm would probably make for a good compromise if you want something a bit more xc biased.

    I’m building up a P7 but don’t know what length of fork to go for 100 or 120? And what affect will it have on handling?

    Cheers
