    Bike geometry by changing fork

    Hi, I own a Cannondale Jakyll, THe CUrrent fork is a axel 70-100mm travel (i always use it 100mm) im planning upgrading the fork with a FOx FLOAT RLC 06' the travel on the fork is 130mm, I would like to know if it will make a huge difference in my riding which is XC, most of the time i ride in places where there are alot of rocks and rootts, some drops.......

    I hope someone could help me..
    thanks

    An extra 30mm will slacken your head tube angle a bit. The bike won't track as well on climbs, but *might* handle better on descents. It definitely will feel sloppier in the singletrack.
