    are you wanting to keep with a Qr wheel etc.....

    if yes then the RS revalations

    if you want to go for a 20mm axeled fork then the RS Pike.

    you are running discs? oh and you will need an adaptor and mybe a different disc size.

    I think the Chameleon frames can go up to a 160mm fork and still be under warranty.

    Plenty forks in that area as well, depending on how hard you will be riding them. Magura Wotans, Marz AM1s, Fox 36, Lyriks, Pikes...the list goes on.

    All use a 20mm thru axle though. So you will need a new wheel.

    ddoogie be careful the early ones did not go that long. and the current fork is 120mm.

    I forgot they were an old design. You're probably right, Nick. The Black forks are hardly up to date :D
