Just want to see if i could get any feed back from anyone that has any information. I have a 2014 Specialized status frame that i want to put a 27.5 duel crown fork. It has the geometry to support a duel crown just want to be sure the 27.5 is no different at the head tube. Will it fit a 27.5 duel crown like it would a 26 duel crown?

This shouldn't be an issue. The difference really amounts to how much clearance is above the wheel to the fork.
So long as you have the same steerer tube (i.e. straight 1 1/4, tapered, or straight 1.5") between forks there should be
no issue. (Someone can correct me if I'm wrong).

It would fit the bike and make the head tube angle slacker. Slows down the steering. Not necessarily a bad thing. Just be ready for it to react differently.
