pretty impressed....the new Tora U-turn fork is on my bike now. I had no intentions of riding it at maximum travel, 130mm, on my 05 Fisher HKEK frame (xc or all mountian frame, not sure). I had riden it a few time with the max travel set at stock 100mm, and was very happy with the overall feel of the bike. This morning i decide to take it for a short ride with the travel maxed out, 130mm. I had planned on a short ride, ended up running the whole trail as I normally do because i was having fun.
The turning has slowed a bit, not too bad tho. The climb was a little tricky at first because of the extra "lift" in the front. The decends were much smoother and flat ground was little difference. All in all, pretty impressed with it.
The only concern i have right now is that the head tube may be too stressed from the extra degree or 2 of rake the bike has. anyone else tried a set up like this?
heres the bike as it sits now.
