    Fisher Mullet Fork Upgrade Question ????

    So I have an '09 Mullet, don't care for the DJ on the front and wanted to go with a 120mm fork as a replacement. Maybe a Manitou Minute Pro, Fox 32, or one of the Rock Shox..haven't decided yet.

    Just trying to figure out the drawbacks aside from rake and possibly tearing apart the headtube.

    Trying to lighten it up as well. It's sad when this bike weighs almost as much as my Quake.

    Anyway, share your thoughts and experiences.

    Thanks.

    The Mullet was a cool bike, nice frame. The thing really is a tank, almost every Bontrager part is overweight but strong enough for some abuse. Any of the forks listed should work well, going to 120 won't gain you a bunch of capability for bigger hits but it may look cooler. Raking out the front end should add some high speed stability but hurt your low speed stability. I really like the Manitou forks, not so much Fox (too expensive).

    Yeah, after starting the post and thinking about it I would actually go with a 140mm Minute Pro. I'll just make sure I leave enough on the steer tube to use on the Titus if I don't like it on the Mullet.

    I agree it's overbuilt, but it's friggin' hefty. Good bike though.
