My question is would it be a good idea to decrease the amount of spacing between the headset and stem when I switch to the longer travel fork? Or should I keep the same amount of spacing I have now? Has anyone made a switch like this? What did you do?
The travel of the fork doesn't matter - it's the difference in distances between the axle and the top of the crown. If the new fork is taller A-C, you will need to remove the same amount of headset spacers from below the stem to maintain your original riding position. If that ends up being necessary, you can either relocate the spacers to the top of the stem (simple) or cut the fork's steerer tube shorter (pro).
