Hey bud. Bikes are spec'd with forks of a specific travel for a reason. That said, you could likely put a 140mm fork on there without impacting the geometry too much. Anything longer than 140/150mm and the bottom bracket may get so high that it impacts the handling of your bike.

130mm of travel is definitely on the "trail" end of the spectrum. Most "all-mountain" guys are in the 140-160mm range.
