    7poin5 build

    im currently building up a 2007 7point5 and looking for ideas for forks, i live in mn so the terrain isnt to crazy, there are a few downhill runs and some decent jumps/freeride areas, i was thinking of maybe going smaller then a 180 mm fork, i hear alot of people flamming the manitou travis but some people swear by them and say they are underrated. otherwise i was looking into a domain or possibly a totem depending on how much money i can scrape together, any input is appreciated!
    thanks,
    nate

    This is the fork I am putting on the '05 7 point 7 frame I scored. Taiter and myself are both in the twin cities area. Are you a member of the MORC?

    You will probably loose a degree on the head angle w/ the 160mm fork. It will put you somewhere around 68 degree.
