Does running a 66 on the front void warranty? I know the bike can handle it but if the front cracks will Turner replace it?

I asked DT about running a 180mm fork, and he told me to go for it, for the sake of seeing how the frame will hold up. 6 months later, and all is still intact. As for the warranty question, Turner bikes always takes care of it's customers.

Ok, Im not in possesion of the frame yet, but I will start with my planned build, and edit in photos later....
not many are my friend, not many are. heres my current plan. besides a frame, i have all the bits i need. everything is '07 unless otherwise stated.

Frame: Medium in custom finish, SRP ti & alloy h/ware
Shock(s): RP23, SRP ti h/ware. maybe a '05 AVA if my geo idea works. 5.5" rfx anyone?
Fork: TBD - AM 1 SL or Float 36 RC2
Headset: TBD - FSA Orbit Extreme, SRP ti h/ware or King
Stem: Thomson Elite100mm or FSA Gavity OS 70mm dependin on the day
Bar: Easton Monkey Lite DH or FSA XC 280 OS dependin on the day
Grips: '06 ODI Ruffian lockon
Brakes: Magura Louise, SRP ti h/ware, Goodridge lines, 160/180 rotors
Crank/BB/Ring: TBD Shimano XT, SRP ti h/ware or 952 XTR with E-13 bashguard
Guide: Heim 3 w/ MRP roller dependin on the day
Shifters: X9, SRP ti h/ware
Rear Der: X9
Front Der: X9, SRP ti h/ware
Chain: PC 990
Cassette: PG 980 11-34
Pedals: Crank Bros Eggbeater SL's, Mallet M's or 50/50's dependin on the day
Seatpost: Maxm MX5 or Thomson Elite dependin on the day (might get a AMP or GD down the road)
Seatpost Collar: Salsa Flip Off
Saddle: WTB Shadow ti or Velo Turner FR logo dependin on the day
Wheels: WTB Speed Disc Trail (till i get some I9 Enduros) or 521's/XT/Hope Big Un dependin on the day
Tires: TBD, but either Maxxis Minion 2.35, Maxxis Advantage 2.4 or Kenda Bluegroove/Nevegal 2.5 (if they fit). ill decide after some testing or dependin on the day

the idea is to create a big travel trail/am/fr/whatever bike more suited to our very steep trails, my relitively light 160 lb weight and somewhat reserved aggression level. target weight is sub 32 lbs, a tad over 30 lbs is not out of the question when i get some I9's.

Hey, any pics of the standard 07 RFX colors? I think the dark bronze is the same as the sultan? That's the color I have on order, although I generally would prefer the green. However, I am not sure what the green looks like. I'm not sure if the green on the website is what it will look like or not.

<This space reserved>
I'll fill in my rfx build and add pics when I get it.

Thre definitive 2007 RFX thread is here, which is linked in the Set-up/FAQ sticky at the top of the forum. If you wade throught the RFX thread many of the differences are discussed, hopefully it'll answer some of your questions.
