      i fave a giant stance 1 2016 120mm travel bike and i’ve been wanting to register for an upcoming enduro race, can i replace my fork to a 140mm travel?

       

      here is my bikes geometry, https://www.giant-bicycles.com/ca/stance-1-2016#geometry

      No problem. People have been “over-forking” bikes for years. I mean, technically every suspension fork on a hard tail “over-forks” it. The general rule is that 20mm of travel change is equal to a 1 degree difference in geometry. Thus your Stance will become a degree slacker at the head and seat angles. A slacker head angle is almost always better for┬ádescending and I think the changes to the seat angle will be barely perceptible to you.
