Afternoon all

Does fitting travel spacers alter the actual length of the fork ?

Example

Using spacers you reduce the travel from 150mm to 140mm. Does the spacer change the length of the fork, or just the amount of travel in the spring ? Tech docs appear to suggest the latter

So you couldnt fit 150mm forks to a 140mm frame by using spacers to reduce the travel as they have no effect on the length of the fork and hence the change in head angle
