    Shiver SC fork... opinions?

    Hey all,

    Found a deal on a 'zoke shiver SC. Its 120mm travel, inverted design with 20mm thru axle. I've heard good things about them. I dont really care about the whole "its flexy" bit either. How is the quality of suspension? I want to run this on my 4" SS bike, think it would be a good choice?

    No, but you don't care about that bit anyway. Do it.

    Is the flex THAT bad that it makes it a bad fork? Its either a pike 426 coil, argy 409, or shiver SC...

    It does flex more than a Pike, but its not all that bad (I'm 230lbs). I had one in 2003/4 and it was super plush. Don't know how it is today, though.

    If you can score that Argyle 409 for a good price, don't hesitate. Mine has been solid under my 190lb gackness...

    Forget the Shiver...

    flex, i think, is the major drawback - but you don't care about its major drawback.

    The DC shiver flexs quite a bit, I'd be scared to see the SC shiver's flex.

    I have and still use 4 of these on everything from 3 Tazers and a Heckler and do not have any problems with flex and the travel is great. I weigh 200 as does my son and my daughter weighs 130 and we use them in the midwest and vacations out West and have never been let down. They have been through xc, dh,4x and dj. I did have a problem with a cartridge on one after a rebuid but other than that, all has been good.
