I’m getting a hardtail mtb for my husband for general XC riding. He is 6’3″ and 200lbs and I have a choice between 2 pretty much identical bikes. One bike has a 100mm Reba RL fork and one has a 120ml Judy Gold. Both have Boost spacing.
Whats more important in this case, assuming all else on bikes equal – do I go for the Judy because it has 120mm of travel or go with the Reba even though it has 100mm travel?
