Quick question

If i fit anything over 100mm forks on my GT Chucker, will it mess up the geometry and eventually the headtube will snap?

I fancy wacking some 130's on there....

    dont think 130mm will do much at all 120mm is probably better, but if you want 130 go for it!

    Contact GT for warranty issues. The frame is built around 100mm travel fork, a travel adjust fork may be a better bet depending on your intended usage. For jumping, 100m should be fine if its a jump fork.
  • I had 130mm on my chucker and it ruined it tbh and made it horrible to ride, so thats been moved on to my Dr Jekyll now and put a 100mm fork back on the chucker.
