    how hard would it be to convert my firefly from 110/130 to 100mm solid?

    how would this be done?

    thanks

    I posted this on mtbr after doing mine up. I have to give big thanks and a footnote to Leethal and Kidwoo who helped with both instruction and "encouragement" during the process. I lowered mine to 80mm but the process is the same, just the length of pipe you use is different. Also, I mentioned using hose washers...DON'T. One big hit and they slip over the top out spring and you have to tear the fork down again. I learned this and switched to using a spacer from a bmx bb. Anyway, here's the link, email me if you have questions...

    Good luck, hope you get it pinned.
