Hi

I am looking to buy the Orange G3 subject to a question I hope the forum can answer. The specs on Orange's site say the std fork is a Tora SL with lockout and 100mm travel.

However, the review on bike radar:

http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/mountain/product/g3-tora-10-36569

says there is 120mm travel in the fork which is getting me a little confused.

So, is the Tora fork on the 2010 Orange G3 100 or 120mm travel?

    so probably a misprint in the review which says:

    "While the standard G2/G3 geometry is relatively steep, the 120mm-travel fork slackens it just enough to stop the whole bike being too twitchy and attention seeking."

    As you say I think it is 100mm. Oh well. 100mm should be fine for xc blasts.

    that was with the optional upgrade to the 120mm fork.
    I got my G3 3 weeks ago and i love it.
