 It's a little more than lookin cool. What's your head angle now? How high is your BB? Any idea how much stress is on a 4" head tube with a single crown? What's the point of a DH bike with a single crown? I'm not trying to be a dick, I just want others to know the problems with this set up. Honestly I think you'd have been better off with a SX Trail, but if you like it cool it's your bike, just seems like a waist. And it does say dual crowns only in the manual.

 1. I don't think anyone has ever bent a totem, they are like the beefiest forks on the market
2. The length of a Totem is almost exactly the same as a Boxxer
3. I didn't do it to look cool, I did it because I already had the fork, I bought it before I decided on what frame i was going to buy
4. I like the geometry of the Demo better than the SX Trail
5. www.pinkbike.com/photo/6473646 I don't think claw would be running it if it was dangerous, or it sucked

p.s. learn to spell, I am 14 and know the difference between waist and waste

 did you get that rear wheel from someone else with a new demo?
  • 1 0
 no i bought it from specialized with the frame because my old wheel wasn't 150mm

 maybe an external bb would put it out far enough to not hit the downtube?
  • 6 0
 how would an external bb help the fork hitting the downtube?
  • 2 2
 there would be more space between the crown and the downtube but i still think it would hit. it really doesnt bother me though
  • 1 0
 oh, how much more space do you need for it not to hit??
  • 1 0
 idk

 How the hell would an external BB help the fork from not hitting?!
  • 2 2
 there would be more space between the crown and the downtube (bottom of the headtube) but i still think it would hit. it really doesnt bother me though
