Hi, I want to ask a question.
I have a scalpel ultimate 2011 and I think I put on the front suspension LEFTY CARBON XLR 120mm. It is possible to do, or will completely fails the geometry of the bike?

Why? XLR100 are perfect for my Scalpel 100 so can't see why to go 120 on your with 80 rear. Better to get 100mm damper and 650b wheel then.

Thank you cerro.
The reason I think about the 120mm is that in the future I will be able to use it in just 29er bike with 90 mm travel.
