    question

    I have a 2006 Kona Dawg Deluxe and I am getting more into freerideing. How can I make this bike more freeride-able. just let me know what stuff I need and good brands for it. I talked to a bike shop and they said not to go over 150mm fork, but i really want a duel crown so will that stress the head tube to much, or no? Thanks for your help.

    tjfox87 I am assuming this was a serious question even though you are yet to get any serious answers.

    The simplest answer would be buy a new bike.
    I am in a similar position to you where I have the identical bike and have been starting to do more jumps and drops on it.

    I don't want a pure fr bike because I also do a lot of climbing so am thinking about getting a coiler frame and swapping some of the parts. For the time being though I have just bought a new fork (pike) to slightly increase travel.

    You could probably ask this in the kona forum and get some good advice there but odds are they will say its time to buy a coiler or stinky.

    What you are able to do on this bike will also depend on your weight and skill.
    Just my 2 cents
