    2006 80mm Fox RLT Stanchion Length

    Hey, just got a new to me 2006 Fox RLT 80mm fork. It replaced my old Duke fork. The exposed stanchions on the Fox are shorter than on the Duke and when measured show 3.5" or 89mm of total exposed stanchion length. Is this normal? It just appears that the fork has been shortened. It has no spacer installed to shorten the fork.

    The fork rides great and feels plush, it just appears that it would almost bottom out if it actually got its total 80mm travel,

    Any thoughts?

    It will bottom out if it reaches 80mm of travel.

    It's an 80mm fork, isn't it?

    If you bleed the air out of it, how much travel does it get before bottom out?

    Just assumed 80mm didn't mean that if it went the full travel it would bottom. I thought there would be a bit of a buffer, more than 9mm. I'll let the air out and measure.
