Considering short travel forks

It's a sad day when the only thing making you want to get suspension is braking bumps and not the trail obstacles themselves...

Anyone else find the braking bumps on the Monkey trail really bad? (FtD is no where as bad)

    Quite a lot now I run my forks very nearly locked out. A little bit of travel for comfort and traction, no wallow through the dips and brake dave, and lot sof reserve travel if I whack something.

    i think its fine but then i do have 140mm of rather soft travel to lessen the impacts :) just wish i had the same at the back :lol:

    I've got 120mm now (upped the Rebas on the Boardman) but I noticed some of them were very bad, real craters in places, this dry weather is great for riding, but not for trails it seems!
