    Tell your friend to avoid those forks. After a couple of weeks he will hate them. If hes on a budget, go second hand. If you're in the UK descent-world always has good stuff for sale in the forums.

    Hahaha...If you find a new or even not totally destroyed used Fox 36 or Lyric for 240$, let me know!

    To the OP, I've heard good things about these. I don't know where they ship to, and its currently out of stock (no idea when it'll be in... ), but I figured I'd throw it out there...

    I like this one because it's steel, and steel is and always will be real...if only it was singlespeed...

    That's all I got, hope it helps!

    Drop Offs are horrible. I rode a DOIII for a month and sold it at the 1st chance I got.
