    Carbon Rockstar.....more travel?

    Really wanting some more travel on this bike. Can I throw a bigger travel fork on it (140 mm-150 mm ) or will doing this bring problems to the frame? It's designed for a 120 mm but others have done it on other bikes. Being that is carbon probably doesn't help my cause. What do you all think ... will the frame bust?

    The frame is pretty stout but running a longer fork will void the warranty. It will also slack out the HA, raise the BB which will probably mess up the climbing prowess of the bike.

    Not interested in voiding the warranty. Specially when not sure the frame will last with a longer travel fork. Will have to save up for an Enduro 29er. Really digging that thing.
