What size fork should I use on the superlight 29?
100-120mm will work great, depending on what you want the bike to do. 100mm forks will give the bike quick handling and lower standover height. 120mm forks will make the bike more stable at speed and are better for slightly more aggressive riders. 120mm is the largest we recommend.
What size shock does the Superlight 29 use?
Size Large and XL frames use 7.875”x 2” (200x50mm)
