Angles look steep. Looks like a trail bike.



Well, you asked my opinion...

why a 888 would sanp the head tube? wanna know why is a trial bike? please thnx
atc is too long, will slacken it out too much making the bike feel like a boat, and raise the bb too much making handle badly.

the bike it just not up to it.

anything with rim brake mounts should not have an 888 on it.

Put disc brakes on the rear, run the smaller fork and use it as a heavy (but probably burly) trail/AM rig.

Good frame to start off with I guess. Itll feel like your riding on top of an elephant with the 888 on there but then you will learn from your mistake on your next bike.

Its a fork that will land you with a snapped head tube and facial reconstructive surgery. On a different bike, it'll feel great though.

looks kind of like the old Giant AC with that bent seat tube. What's rear travel? Having that 888 on there is probably very unwise.

These clowns don't know jack about headtubes and 888s. There is no WAY that an 888 could cause any damage to that frame, maybe a 40 but def not an 888.

HUKKZOZRR!!!!!11!1!!!!!

Looking around, you're not the first one by a long shot to put a DC fork on that bike. It MAY not hold up, keep an eye on the welds at the headtube but I wouldn't be too freaked out about it. It's not like it's a stinky or something though!!!

ATC btw, is Axle To Crown, ie how much higher it raises the headtube compared to other forks.

Where are you located btw?
