sir, I have a GT bike na 26 ang size, right now, naka 27.5 na XCR fork. So far no issue naman, medyo nakatingala siya pero tingin ko mas okay yon pag mag trail ka.

pwede, pero what is specified by the manufacturer should be followed.

ika nga, do it at your own risk. kung mabasag nga frame mo due to it having a higher angle (raised ang front) wag isisi ang bike.

26er, 26er. 29er, 29er. 650b, 650b lang.

Oo nga naman, bakit ba natin pilit na gamitin kung hindi naman specified sa bike natin.

Pwede kung pwede, pero keep in mind magbabago yung intended handling nung bike. I suppose if yung total length ng fork is the same, hence it won't mess with the geometry, should be ok.

Pero if iba, magloloko ang geometry. Imagine, 10mm (half an inch) diff in fork travel will change the head angle, which means the steering will be slow, sa climbs it will wander, and you'd have to lean forward para hindi umangat gulong.

Better kung bawasan ang travel as you said kung talagang gusto mong gamitin ang 27.5 fork to at least make up for the taller fork. Keep in mind in will affect the handling slightly kase ang offset ng fork na 27.5 mas malaki so it will lessen the trail of your front wheel which will make handling more twitchy, but the noticeable difference will probably be minor.
