I have a 150 mm travel fork on mine now. It came with a 120 mm. It changed the stand-over height about 1½" making it tough for me to stradle the bike on a hill. It also raised my riding position somewhat, which I considered a good thing, since I don't have bar ends installed.
I'd go with a good quality fork in that range you mentioned 80-100, unless you want to get into jumping. Any fork can work for you as long as you don't mind a little change. Sometimes for the better....
