What do you think are the pros & cons of putting a 120mm fork on a GT Karakoram frame?

bro, pros:
1. longer travel, a little bit more plush yung feel
2. more stable if riding in a straight line

cons:
1. slower handling when changing directions
2. frame warranty will be void since the frame was designed for 4" only (check warranty)
3. stress sa head tube area (welded portion connecting the top and down tube)coz of added travel. however 20mm of added suspension will probably not affect same area.

depende chief sa frame and geometry, kung ht or susser. usually pg 29" ht, ang alam ko at least 80mm yung travel. normally, its safe to assume na at least 20mm less than ang travel than whatever a 26" will be. for example, pg 140mm yung travel ng fork ng 26", sa 29" it'll be 120mm or probably less. simply coz mas malaki gulong ng 29"

best to check manufacturer's website or the manual when you get the frame.
