Can you put a bigger fork on bike?

That doesn’t mean it will suck, but it’s just something to be aware of.19 Jun 2018

Are Fox forks worth it?
That said, they really are very good forks/dampers. Even the lower models include the proper damping circuits (high and low speed) that will allow the fork to react well to high and low-speed impacts. The basic idea is that fox doesn’t make “cheap” forks, like RS, Marzocchi and others do.Jun 9, 2011
Can I put 120mm forks on a 140mm bike?
Going from 120 mm up to 140 mm should be perfectly fine. It will probably give you 1 degree of slack angle to your front end and raise your bb height by possibly 1/2″. Going up to 160 mm on your fork would be really pushing the limit in my humble opinion.10 Jan 2016

Can I put 150mm forks on a 120mm bike?
hi dom, you yea can, but that is maybe a bit too much. All things being equal, it will make your bike slacker and raise the bottom bracket. So while you are looking for a bit more travel on the way down, the higher BB does not help with cornering. So it’s a trade-off.1 Mar 2018

Can I put a 100mm fork on a 120mm bike?
By going to 100mm you are changing the angles that the bike was designed for. Doesn’t sound like a big deal, and it might not be, however the bike will definitely handle differently than it does with a 120mm fork (and probably not for the better). It sounds like the bike is too big for you.12 Sept 2014
