How much of the available fork movement do you use - judged by using a ty-wrap around the fork leg.

I have about 25mm of chrome stanchion left before it will bottom out, but I'm thinking this is 24mm of wasted travel that could be utilised.

I've bottomed the forks once in almost two years (prior to re-valve and new springs) and am thinking maybe accepting that the forks will bottom very, very occasionally is worth it to get the extra suspension movement?

Your thought's please.
