    The basic problem is making the fork legs longer than they need to be. The bending stress at the crown is proportional to the length cubed, so if you make your fork 490 mm axle-to-crown instead of 425 mm, you've increased the stress over 50%. Not a wise design decision.
    Can you explain this? Since bending momentum increases linear with the distance.
