    How smooth is the ride, is it comfortable, how are the disc brakes and what's the problem with the front fork?

    Thanks

    the ride of the bike i would say is very smooth. i changed my tyres to panaracer pro (red) which make the ride exceptionally smooth. the disc breaks are good but not exellent after about 6 months (depending on how harsh you use them) but when they do start to go. get your self some avid juicy 3's (hydraulics) $49 each with calaper and lever. the forks i think you have are rst gila tl's there ok but extreamly bouncy and hard to bottom out because there 100 mm travels.. thanks

    i was looking at your tires, but they are about the same thick as my originals, i was actually looking on getting some thicker rounder tires since they make the bike look better. do you know if kenda tires are good or panaracer are better?

    i think the thickest tyres you can put on the bike is 2.3'' which is wide and slows you down but the panaracer ones look really nice on the bike and there 2.1''
    yes 20'' should be fine for 6 ft

    the largest frame size is 26'' which is huge e.g. if your 7ft. im only 5ft 5'' and i have a medium frame which is 20'' which is built for someone my height. panaracer tyres i have only known them to *** in red and black but im sure if you look on a website e.g.halfords(england) you might find some dmr moto tyres which are all black and 2.33''width and look the piece.
