Question by desjmay: Maximum travel for a rocky mountain flow?
just thinkin about upgrading from my 130 mm fork and was wondering what the maximum amount of travel is that I would want to put on there. The bike is a 2006 rocky mountain flow 1.0
Answer by O A
You never stated the type of riding that you do, and that is pivotal on the amount of travel that you would want. In all honesty I wouldn’t go any higher than 130mm regardless of the terrain because the head angle will become too slack. If you are doing a lot of decent type riding a slack head angle can be a good thing, but for 4X and dirt jumping it effects your cornering. If I were going to do an upgrade I would probably look for something with 100mm or travel or with adjustable travel. If it comes down to fork action v/s travel, I would go for fork action.
