Normally freeride bikes have between 66-68 degree HA while DH bikes have 64-67 degree HA. Todays crop of FR & DH bikes have front triangles that are strong enough to accept 170 to 200mm forks. I believe that some if not most could even accept the now discontinued extreme 300mm forks such as the Risse Bigfoot & Marzocchi Super Monster; but of course we're talkin about chopper slack 60-62 degree HA that would only be applicable for extreme Benderesque riding.

why is this question being asked?
Cause big hucks, big travel, and big tires are where it's at. :rockon: The apocalypse is back. Bender's healed up. Next year we're all gonna rock 3.0" tires again. Do you live in a cave? Girl jeans, glitter, and hat stickers look totally rad gnar off the sicktor scale when hucking.
