    Yes it does, the enduro frame come's with a yellow sticker on the top tube near the headtube that state's you can run 150mm travel fork's max. Atleast my '06 sworks did.

    The frame may hold, but if you break it no way they will do anything under warranty. You would deff be stupid though to be riding an enduro with a dc fork

    they wont do anything if you call them and tell them you cracked your head tube because you had a 203mm fork on it. but you can always just throw your old 140mm on there. how are they gonna know?

    I've seen people at the races with 180mm Double Crown forks on their SX's. Risk vs Reward i guess.

    Yeah? Well neither do 6" rotors... but that doesn't stop people from calling 160mm rotors "6 inch."

    I wouldn't quite jump to the stolen mark yet...although misspelled words and the fact that he doesn't get into too much detail would mean that he is trying to get rid of this bike fast...a little too quick if you ask me...be careful

    Nope. 140mm rotors aren't 4 inch. 140mm works out to a bit more than 5.5 inches.

    I'd be p!ssed too if somebody emailed me and accused me of trying to move a stolen bike.

    I don't see how there's anything official about it... and you haven't posted any of the exchanged words.

    The guy claims to have receipts. And $1800 is a lot to be asking for a hot bike.

    With all the misspellings you see on MTBR all of them could be thieves as well.....

    front triangle on that bike is pretty solid. i broke the rear triangle on mine. after S replaced it i gave the bike to my wife. one of the best bikes in her stable for sure.

    wow this went somewhere i totally didn't intend. I was more making fun of the fact that there was a 888 on there...chill out on the stolen, its probably not, he probably got into mountain biking, got what a shop recommended for him as a "do it all" bike, wanted to make it more DH/FR, saw that the 888 was a DH/FR fork, and slapped it on. Then he moved on from mountain biking.

    maybe chill out, have a laugh at a 888 on an enduro, and move along.
