    ...Not for the squeamish!!
    20mm bolt through and dual crown keeps it stiff ...

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    Curious... what type of riding is that used for?

    Doesn't the fork arch have multiple reasons for being there?
    1. Stiffness. A 20mm through axle and double crown will help, but that middle attachment is huge when it comes to stiffness.
    2. To some extent, wouldn't the legs would operate independently? At least for forks where one side is the spring and one is the damper?
    3. There is no way that suspension engineers have more knowledge about their products than you do right?
    4. Is this trolling?
    5. I really hope this is just trolling.

    That BB is hilariously high. But well done for being creative!!

    Check in after you case a jump and that fork folds up like a cheap suit. The roughest riding I would do on that bike might be a golf path. Good luck. :skep::devil:

    I did a conversion similar to this one time(but without the hacksaw). The BB was so high it was like I looking at the trail from Google Earth.

    Please post pics after the accident that leads you to the understanding that you probably shouldn't have done that.

    Aside from the butchered fork, the BB is higher than the axles, do the math, it ain't good.
    Maybe you can run 50% sag with all that extra travel and end up OK? Or not.

    Whatever drug you're on is a hell of a thing.

    But please tell us it's a coffee/bar/bike party/stoopid bike
