    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The legs might do more independently, regardless of one leg having the spring. Have you ever checked out the twisting of the legs on an older set of inverted DH forks? Also, even though the forks were single crown the I have seen in person and in photos, a 20mm thru axle didn't stop failure when arches broke.
    Then again, it may just end up a sloppy steering fork, or be just fine.
    I hope we hear back from the OP either way once some time has been put on the set up.

    We have not heard from the OP bc:

    A. He is terribly embarassed
    B. That death contraption failed in every way imaginable leaving him incapable of responding.

    im thinking this has to be a joke. no one would actually do that. im guessing he had an old dual crown fork that doesnt work anymore lying around and decided to play a joke. no way that the rear wheel doesnt hit the seat tube after about 3 inches of travel, and no way that 'modified' fork will last a single drop off a curb.

    I believe that Santa Cruz's version of that color was called - and insanely appropriate here - skid mark.


    Learning how to ride has nothing to do with wanting enough BB clearance to ride your local trails. I hear this crap all the time on the inter-web, and it is a joke. If you have to focus part of your brain on where your pedals are, you are compromising.
    That being said, the OP's solution is a bit over the top.

    Unless I've missed something, he hasn't altered where the axles and BB are on the frame...

    On a separate note, those photos were date stamped in Sep - I genuinely want the OP to give us an update (although I suspect it was a spoof with a fork bust beyond repair...)

    time stamp for the fork cutting is right, however the OP lost the axle, so it was November before it was built, which is the time stamp on the bike pic if you click it and look closely

    i think he's 200+ miles in, ok he's not hucking or doing massive downhill runs but works fine though,

    no tyre/seat tube interference - the cable guide on the seat tube was removed

    I think you're missing something, basic frame geometry....
    Longer I2I on rear shock = higher rear axle in relationship to bb. Single pivot rear triangle moves rear axle down in relationship to bb as shock length increases.
    Longer travel front fork/increased axle to crown = higher bb period, axle height remains constant (in relationship to ground) bb height increases as front travel/axle to crown height increases.
    Even with the 29" wheels effectively raising the axle height in relationship to the ground, that bb is ridiculously high....Check out a 29" frame, the bb has much more "drop" to maintain appropriate bb height.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the crazy factor here, not trying to be a dick. A higher bb does effect the handling of the bike, 13-13.5" is fairly common for a mid travel FS frame (26, 27.5 and 29 inch) these days. Hey at least you won't have to worry about pedal strikes and run your seat low so you can put your feet on the ground....

    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.

    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.

    Yeah, it's called intelligence. Could be one of the stupidest ideas I've ever seen.

    I'm not going to hate, and admire your creativity. Definitely creative and ballsy. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out.

    That's because he's trolling. Hard to type with only one hand free.

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

    ........your shitting me right?

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