    Fantastic. I'm sure there's no reason for that half inch thick piece of metal anyway, probably just something the lawyers at Rockshox made them put on.

    Heckler 26,... now 29er! :-)

    Lefties are good forks, so this should be twice as good right?

    I'm guessing REDALP bikes' designers will be stoked with this.

    You should think this through. You will die riding this.

    If it were me, I would have gone 650b and changed out the front shock to a Fox as most of them will clear. It would be interesting if he would do a Go Pro of his front fork and measure the flex.

    It's probably just at the powder coater to get the fork touched up after sawing.

    Gotta say, nice job covering the stanchions with tape. That'll save them from getting scored up by the metal shavings.

    This is definitely for lateral stability, as you go around a sharp turn the shock on the outside (relative to the turn) will compress more than the inside. hitting any rocks while in the turn will reduce your control. With a Dual crown, this will be less noticeable, but the stress on the bushings will be too great and probably by the end of this season you will need to service it.

    Its a great idea the bad ass rock shock can take it. The crown will bearly clear a 26 in tire...now the fork is fit for service, maybe even a 26x2.40

    But will it bend?

    Seriously, under braking, latteral forces of the wheel, bigger wheel, longer lever...
    If it's a good idea all the weight weenies would be sawing their lowers to shed a couple grams.

    Idea! Fixed it

    The problem with this thread is that all those haters are just not innovators. See, I fixed it. Removing the brace wasn't the problem, not putting it back in was the problem!

    Rigidity restored and no chance of death.

    Oh I could so totally use a hacksaw to 29erize one of those forks too. Not a bad idea actually.

    No, this is correct. the axle alone is not enough to keep the legs in sync.
