    Hello everyone.
    Using the tire up method I am trying to measure the actual fork travel of my B11.

    Bike's specs give a 120mm but I seriously doubt it... Compressing the fork I can hardly get to 95mm.
    Riding on the road the tire up sets at 80-85mm.

    Anybody can confirm the real fork travel?

    Managed to measure actual fork travel.
    It's 110 mm, not 120 mm as specified
