    Smile Anyone runnin or seen an 8 inch rotor on Fox Talas or Vanilla?

    Hey gang,was just wonderin if anyone is runnin or tried an 8 inch rotor on their Fox fork?Fox doesn't recommend this but manufacturers are always not recommending this or that.I don't know if it's because of a weakness in the mounting bolt area for the adaptor or the dropouts.I see lots of bikes runnin 8 inch rotors with regular dropouts but they are usually on a Marzocchi fork.
    My wheelset is relatively light and i'd be usin the new Xt brakes and an XT rotor so perhaps the relatively decent weight would help to run that set up without incident,not sure.Any info would be great.
    Thanks
