I was wondering if my 2008 Haro Werx Xeon can handle a dual crown fork. I have a Rock Shock Boxxer Ride that is adjustable from 135mm all the way up to 175mm. This would be great for all around riding. Your just doing the regular riding set it to 140mm travel. If your riding something a little but nastier then set it to 175mm. I mean the bike is setup for all around riding right. Can this frame handle this fork with out ripping of the headtube?

Totally agree with DHJ you do not want to put a dual crown fork on the Xeon. AM is considered a aggressive XC bike not a FR bike. :thumbsup:

Categorizing intended bike use is a crap shot, look at the word AM it can be used by a XC guy that launches 3in rocks to a rider that rides 4ft drops yet the bike is designed around a SC fork generally with 5-6in travel. Another interesting comment is weight the XC wanna be AM'er is a weight weinnie while the real AM rider is less concerned but needs the bike to be durable. :cornut:
