    Dekerf Implant is a 853 steel bike that could run a double clamp fork. Mad gussetting around the headtube.

    Some of the Evil frames like the Imperial can handle big forks. The Sinister Ridge can as well. There are others too but these are my favorites.

    There are a million burly hardtail frames that can take a big fork. Of course, all of the Evil frames will take a big fork like that, but there are a dozen others as well. You have to be a little more specific on what you're looking for.

    Yep, any of the Norco 'Shore' series HTs can take it. Any steel 'freeride' frame you come across should be able to handle a 66 or just about any DC fork (that Dekerf is SWEET, btw). yah, lots of frames out there that could probably handle it, but whether the manufacturer recommends (read: warranties) it is another story.

    Hey, that's my bike!

    And I love it- so versatile. Did cheakamus challenge on it (squammish to whistler off-road) and also rode garbonzo runs and Khyber ridge on it lots last summer. Damn I love that bike. It gets ridden more than my turner.

    When I first got it, I ran my Z150 on it, and I felt that it was a little too slack since I was doing some XC rides with long climbs at the time. I will try it again though, it just depends on what rides are happening. Sure is easy to manual with the long head tube and short chainstays!
    Here's another pic....

    PS, check out the peyto wild billl too, that's a great looking steel frame....

    A Sinister for sure. the evil and morhpine is good. But i would get a Sinister, more of a personal thing.

    Snipes...

    Check out the Snipes hardtail. Those things can take up to an 8" Dual Crown. Plus they come in every color you could imagine. They look strong as hell.

    planet-x pitbull works well with a 170mm DC, and anything shorter as well
