As above chaps,

Anyone ridden a 456c using a 4" travel fork ? Ride OK or Not worth it.

    Yes, it rides fine, I had a 100mm reba on mine when I first put it together. It handled Hamsterly in the snow with no problems. I have a 150mm on it now, which has made it a little worse at at climbing but better at decending. Personnally I would say be more worried about the length of the stem, going 60mm and below makes a difference, I found.

    Cheers for that Gray.
    As you can see, i live in Suffolk, so pretty much just XC riding. It should work well for what i want. Experimenting with stems is no problem...ive got a few.

    All the best.
