Fork Height Question
Posted April 19, 2008 - 11:34 AM
My question is how far down the tube can I slide them safely? I had them flush last year and this year I decided to drop them down alittle more, take a look and tell me if it's too far??
and if there are any more things I can do to make the bike feel bigger for me, please shoot any suggestions you may have......

I can't see any drama n having the forks where thet are now, but personally I would not be comfortable in running them any lower - clamping force will be drastically reduced.
Max I dunno if you prefer comfort over steering/ turning ability, but by lowering the forks obviously the bike will turn more slowly - even with a taller rear tyre - and it's not exactly razor sharp in the steering dept to begin with.
When you say small, do you mean cramped, it's each to their own but I like a bike to feel small.
I'm 6'2" and have raised the bars 20mm and plan on getting Fastway lower pegs, but I have raised the forks in the clamps by 8mm as the steering feels way to slow for my liking - it's better for my style like this.
