    The NRS is a XC bike that's just designed for that sort of thing. Of course, the extra length of the
    forks will drastically alter the geometry and make it ride like a chopper. And the extra leverage
    will put greater stresses on the head tube possibly leading to failure. It will also match the short
    rear wheel travel really well.

    So in summary, it's a really good idea...

    Giant specifically says NOT to do this with any of their XC bikes.
