hmm not sure if theyre suitable
what travel are they?

these frames were prone to cracking at the seat tube/down tube junction

(but still many of these frames around so it cant be that bad, not to put you off, just to point out)

frames only suited to 100mm ish travel

if theyre around that then i dont see why they wouldnt be fine

and the bike should be good for those duties 8)
you can also consider singlespeed on these :wink:

put undue stress on the frame/headtube :?

i havent done this before but im sure many will tell you not to
but then maybe not?

i was planning on building my old i drive with 150mm (110-150)
it looked fine but im not sure
actually, just had a flash back
i used to run dual crowns 8)
on my old old i drive (my first proper bike)
they were fine
but i crashed it when i was pissed and bent them :lol:

they were 100mm though
