Max fork travel on 2004 Enduro?

Hello Lee

I have a Specialized Enduro 2004 and was wondering how large a fork I could put on it. The guys at PUSH Industries said nothing more than a 140MM. What do you think? It currently has a 130MM TALAS.

My pumptrack is almost done. Your Pump track manual is very helpful.


Hi Bill.

Officially, any longer than stock voids the warranty. But 140mm sounds right. The PUSH Industries guys know their stuff.

I rode moto yesterday with Darren from PUSH. He gave me lots of helpful tips, then graciously let me keep up so he could roost me. What a bro!

    hey, to add to that question, would adding 40mm to my 130mm travel bike to 170mm greatly change the handeling of my bike with a HT angle of 68.5 degrees? i just want to put a heavy hitting fork like a Marz 66 or a Jr. T in place of my talas rlc.

    2005 Jamis dakar XLT 3.0, I just want a little more travel. but still have the plushness for XC but yet still have some nice big hit suspension for light freeriding.

    a 36 will slack you out and give you some front cush, but you’ll have a higher BB — and the same rear end.

    i wouldn’t do it.

    Right on.

    It’s easy for me to tell people what to do with their bikes. … I need someone to tell me what to do with my life!
