HI

I have a Gary Fisher tass 06
i want to upgrade the manitou axel forks to rockshox recons. i was thinking of going for the U- turn option, even though the frame is only warrentied up to 105mm forks. So i was wondering how much the extra 25mm would damage the frame and change the handling?

thanks

    Does the Tass have G2 Genesis geometry?

    G2 Geometry uses a different fork offset to any other bike manufacturer, so fitting a non G2 offset fork might make it handle differently.

  • no its just the genesis geometry on the 06, didnt the G2 geometry come in on the 08 models?

    Still has a different fork offset IIRC... I might be wrong (it has happened before ;))

    Worth checking out just incase though
