Hello. I have a spare XL F600 frame, some magura gustavs and strong wheel and am thinking of building a light freeride fun bike. It would be a single chainring, 9 speed bike with above 130 mm front travel. I'm 6 foot 7 inches tall and weigh around 220 pounds. Will the frame (headtube - downtube junction) handle the load from 50 mm more travel then original fatty? Is the front area stiffness and wall thickness of F600 the same as on chase frames because they all share the same rear triangle? I dont want to ruin a good frame or my face :-)
Thanks for the input.
