    Fork change on Santa Cruz Bullit?

    Just a question, has anyone tried putting a 6" fork on an '01 Santa Cruz Bullit? I was considering it, but I'm worried the angles will kill the headtube.

    You can run 150mm fork on it....it was designed for it.

    Ran an old Boxxer 151 on mine without any issues.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    Thanks man, I was just a little wary because when I bought it (used) it came with the stock 5.1" Bomber. Does anybody have a suggestion of what fork to put on it? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Those older Bullits ride great with 6-7" travel forks.
    No reason to have anything less than 6" on an old Bullit.
    Totems, Floats, Vans, 66-take your pick.
