    SX trail and E150 fork?

    Has anyone out there tried putting a E150 fork into an SX trail frame? Does it work? Can it work? Or does the geometry not add up?

    The geo will be off given that the E150 has less travel than what comes stock on the SX trail. It will give you a lower BB and a steeper HT angle. You can simply compare the axle to crown on the 36 Van to the E150.

    the e150 off the XL bike is longer and should be able to set the ride height difference to get the chassis and bb corrected -----but you will be alittle short on travel ( this can be corrected also but it takes some fab work that would not be easy )

    i have never measured these two bikes out to see what it would take ,---

    but i will say i really like the e150 and the way it works and can take hits and drops , ---and it is light and very stiff !!
