Hey folks,

Any non-Clydesdales have experience/opinions of the F3 10.5 for lighter riders?

Is it too much?

The size of the frame also plays a factor when selecting the stiffness of the fork.

I was thinking in regard to Max for an example...

A 60cm MXL, a 56cm MXL, and a 53cm MXL are all one fork.

For descending, I am thinking "very stiff" is not really a flaw, but maybe over a 100 miles a lighter rider might want a lighter fork?

I have an Enve 2.0 on my corvid and love it but am looking at an F3 for a serotta...

I have a new F3, 6.5 that I will trade :). But it has a 52mm rake.
