I have already read that forum. I know it would be a stretch, thats why i'm posting. I thought though that because it is a "burly" hardtail and the fork has less travel than most dual crown (6.1 inches apose to 7) and the head angle is relativly vertical (69 degrees) (stinky has 65.5 degreese and the head and top tube look the same as the scrap), that it might be ok. My local bike shop said it should be fine and won't really weaken this frame (might feel a little different). I guess i'm just looking for a bunch of opinions from both sides, especially if someone has exsperiance with this sort of thing (bike mechanic/shop worker or did it to their bike). Please respond!
