    Yo mate, should be able to fit anything up to a 203mm disc. I would recommend a 180mm one though mate, uless your planning to do hardcore riding on it or want stupid amounts of stopping power.

    Im assuming there are disk mounts on the fork leg by the way?

    i wouldnt go any bigger than 160mm on the xct fork, any bigger and the bushes will deteriorate very quickly.

    which raises the point.. is there supposed to be little bit of play at the bottom of my forks when braking/ hitting obstacles. from the riding view, just looks like the move back and forward a bit.. and its not my headset, that tight and fine.

    if theres a wobble between the stantion and the fork leg then your bushes may be worn, if its just general back and forward movement when riding then its just flex.
