Was using talas (140-120-100) but back on 120mm SID’s at the moment – have toyed with the idea of spacing the SID’s down to 100 though, as the handling’s as sharp as new pin at that length. The strip down to add or remove spacers with your forks will only take 10-15 minutes, so try both to see which you prefer?
My Cotic Soul is currently having it’s build finished off by my LBS at the moment. I went with Reba Team 120 forks. The bike shop phoned me this morning and asked if I wanted them spaced down to 100mm or not.
Just wondering as looking through a few old threads 100mm seems a popular choice.
Even Cy has said (three years ago) that he prefers his with 100mm
Anyone changed from 120 to 100?
Any personal preferences?
It’s going to be used for trail centres, costal rides, days out in the borders etc.
I ran mine at 100, 120, 130 and 140 using Rebas or Revs.
Concluded that avoiding big hitting techy stuff, for both fast and slow twisty singletrack, the less the better in terms getting the front end to stick on corners – but even if you only rode at 140mm and nothing else you could well think it was great. Found the front really only goes walkabout when running a Bfe at 160 on the tighter bends. In the end stuck at well sagged 130mm on my Revs as a `do it all’ travel setting.
