No, Go 130 max. Anything over 130 will screw with the geom. and it wont ride right, and also may snap either the head tube on the forks or the frame.

anything that worked properly on your gt avalanche would have been a bonus. :D
I think a rigid bike would have been more stable when i had the pleasure of riding it up FOD
