So I'm assuming you have a Hardrock with a 140mm fork that you've ridden for several years?

I wouldn't own a hardrock. We all know they explode with a 140mm fork installed

Most HRs are designed with a 100mm fork. Are you running a 140 on one? And if yes (or even if no), is that remotely dangerous?

Just wondering
