Doing some research the current Rockshox SID XX 100mm 29 has an AC (axel to crown) measurement of 526mm


I'm not sure where you are getting 526mm for that fork.  From what I've read, it is closer to 506mm.

Thats correct, measured my fork to be sure, got the 526mm from first best google hit :) thx

Great info! And just my thought about the frame durability. Getting a 2nd hand Fox 130mm travel next week that I will try on the bike.

The seat tube angle is already with a 100mm Fork on the edge. Sure you want to push it even further?

I don't think the seat tube is the issue.  It would be more the headtube - adding an inch of fork length would be putting a fair bit more torque on the head tube.

Seems like your turning an XC  Bike into a trail. Not sure it was designed for big jumps. But I remember someone mentioning their plus bike is the same frame with different chainstays. Keep us posted

I'm running a 120mm Fox 34 on my M06 and love it, I did have a 100 fox32 on it for a couple of weeks but i prefer the longer fork.

Do mind making a build thread for your M06? I bet others would like to see it as well, especially after you mentioned going from 32 to 34.

I wont be riding harder nor do any big jumps with it, just curious how it affects the overall performance/feel of the bike on the mix of very technical trails with alot of climb/ascent to pure gravel/XC, perhaps its a no brainer once I tried. Got some segments im doing often so it will be easy to measure the difference.

New parts: Darimo T1 seatpost. As I was afraid, it's incompatible with my open mold saddle: rails too short (5cm) and too widely spaced, so I took a Saevid Alien from road bike (out use until April anyway). Complete combo weights 168g, which is roughly on par with a Berk railed combo from Gullholm's thread on WW.
