I'd love to go to at least a 7" in front, but I don't think my Reba can handle it.
Edit: I just looked into it. I can go up to 210mm!
I wonder how large I could go on a Team SID fork with an XTR hyd disc.
it's got 6" now.

Why do you want to go bigger?
Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
mostly just a curiosity thing on limitations of the fork.. but in MI it's snow or wet most of the year with a short break in Winter for road construction season.
besides, bigger is always better, isn't it?

Lovin the thomson stuff... Im eventually getting a stem, but that comming after my pedals/shoes/forks/ and possibly brakes.
99 Pontiac Sunfire @ 184,000 miles. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
94ish GT Timberline with many upgrades
Original Shimano Acera crank (that actually works quite well); SRAM x.9 rear der; SRAM XGEN front der; Avid V Brakes; Saris Bones 2 (that I just got, we'll see how it goes) Judy XC fork.
I don't have any pictures at the moment but my bike is built as follows:
04 Iron Horse Hollowpoint Expert
Fox F100 RL fork
Manitou Swinger 3-way rear shock
XT 770 cranks
Sram X9 shifters, X0 RD, XT FD
Hayes Carbon HFX9 7" rotor hydro brakes
Mavic Crossland UST wheelset
Maxxis Highrollers tubeless (going to Nevegal UST front)
Easton EA50 stem, handlebars and seatpost
It currently has an internal headset but the cups will fit a traditional headset so I might put my Chris King in to slack the head tube angle up a bit. I'm going to build a FS 29er sometime this summer. Probably a Rip 9er, RST M29 fork, Hope pro 2 hubs laced to stans rims.
Well it's not a complete bike yet, but hopefully soon. The stem is just temporary to hold the fork on.
Fully Rigid Hardrock 05'. Some cheapo stock parts, except for the holzfellers. 24.5lbs; pretty light for a big bike.
Figured I'd post a pic before my upgrades that are just around the corner. Upgrades are gonna be a Tora up front, some Avid Juicy's (maybe bb7s, depends how cheap I am), new shifters/rear derailleur.
BTW: yes it's a huge frame 23" to be exact. I'm 6'5". It is actually a little big for me. My next frame will be about 21".

Erwin Schroedinger will kill you like a cat in a box. Maybe.
isn't fully rigid overly descriptive?
it's rigid or it ain't right?
or are you suggesting we start defining bikes by their rigidity and not their suspension characteristics.
fully rigid = rigid
part rigid = hardtail
fully non rigid = dually
I dig it.
