Fork offset, trail, shorter? longer?! Undoubtably offset has an impact on your ride. Fox, Rockshox, MRP, and others are all offering up forks in different offset options. While I will not belabor ride quality difference  of fork offset, trail, etc. here, I will touch on the question of, Can it be done / is it worth it on your particular fork:

Fox 36:

  • 2017 or prior looking to go to 37mm rake
    • requires a new airspring assembly
    • Increasing travel may require damper change
  • 2017 look to go 44mm rake (offset)
    • 180mm max for 27.5 160 max for 29
    • Increasing travel may require damper change
  • 2018+ 37mm rake (offset)
    • 180 max 27.5 170 max 29
    • Increasing travel may require damper change

Part requirements and pricing:

  • Kashima upper assembly (CSU).  ~$320-350
  • Black Ano upper assembly (CSU). ~$210-250
  • 2018/19 Air spring assembly.  ~$42
  • Typically around $150 in standard service parts & labor
    • discounts if upgrading damper cartridge

Rockshox Pike:

Altering Pike and Lyrik is a bit more involved and may require updating your damper to fit the new CSU.
