Are there any downsides to reducing the travel of a fork?

I'm going to buy a new set of Pikes in 29er flavour which will need to be 140mm travel for the frame they will be fitted to. I'm wondering if there are any negatives to buying a 160mm fork and fitting travel reducers so I could then swap them onto an enduro frame for alp trips thus saving the cost of another set of forks. Does fitting travel reducers alter the performance of the fork in any way?
