Hello everyone, I am looking to upgrade my standard issue forks on my 2010 Orange P7.

The bike came with Rock Shox 302 Tora Uturn 85mm-130mm.

I do not do anything heavy duty with the bike and i am thinking about changing to 100mm or 120mm air fork.

I have been looking at Fox forks wich start about 565.

Would i be better with 100mm or 120mm for road and trails.

What is an open bath fork?

Any help would be great cheers

Why do you want to change the fork? If you're riding on the road a lot just set the forks between 100mm and 120mm, set the lockout (assuming that you have one) and away you go.

If you really insist on changing the forks then I'd go for some Rockshox SIDs for 390 or even some Rebas for 250. If you're desperate to spend more then 500 then I'd recommend a set of lightweight wheels.

Dr Bike takes no responsibility for damaged limbs or failed relationships as the result of his advice.

Make something idiot proof, and someone somewhere will make a better idiot.
