    IH 6 point with dual crowns

    Has anyone any experience of fitting some dual crown forks to a 6 point?

    Am I going to rip the front end of my IH 6 point off if. Will it screw the angles?

    thanks

    won't that void your warranty?

    I don't think it has a warranty.

    I have been running my 6point for 3 years now with a 180mm Single Crown.
    No issues yet.

    Another degree slacker wouldn't be such a bad thing. I rode my 6point with a shorter i2i shock for a couple weeks which with the 180 fork would put it near a 200mm fork in effective head angle. A boxxer world cup reduced to 180mm would be cool.

    I would make sure you use flat crowns and run the fork tubes as low as you can in the crowns. Maybe reduce internal travel to 180mm if possible.
    If you want to jump and plow with a DC I would be worried that eventually you will see failure.
