    White bros groove 180??

    I'm thinking about getting me a groove 180 fork the USD one, can anyone talk me into/out of one of these?

    I want them as they look "so moto" they don't have to work awesome, just do the job, but i don't really have the riding skill to make up for a goofy handling fork, I guess my main concern is any "shiver flex" it might have? tho I've never ridden a shiver or any other USD fork.

    im glad this came up as i have been thinking about a set of these for a bit now. i like them as i dont want to go to a 200mm fork but a dual crown could be a nice change.

    White brothers

    I have a set on my session 77 I think they're awesome. I am surprised more people don't use them. Super plush.

    Holy crap, The Shiver's coming back in 2010?? I gotta finish my Master's Degree so that I can start working.

    But I'm curious: Is the groove 180/200 based on the older WB DH2 inverted forks? I have friends who use that.

    I'm in no hurry, my '04 shiver still works great . But i'd love to have one side coil spring (maybe Ti), one side air spring, modern damping with some adjustments, packed in a lighter chasis... hence i'm curious what's new in the new shiver.

    Well got me a groove 180 and must say that it's working super sweet!

    So far have not noticed any USD type flex as yet, but not had it down a real gnar hill yet.
    the compression damping works awesome, keeps the fork up in it's stroke nicely but it is bottoming out a little on big hits a G outs.

    Now looking at converting it to an air spring fork.
