    Just a troll in the woods...

    Just got back from a week in Crested Butte, CO with my 1x10 troll.
    Did about 100 miles total of singletrack all above 9700 feet on easy to difficult rated terrain. My riding "buds" had full suspension bikes but the troll was rigid forked and I really had a great time despite it being a bit of a handfull on trails like the one pictured. The Epic Doctor Park.
    3.9 miles and 1485' vertical up followed by 4.6 miles and 2100 feet down.Just a troll in the woods...-photo.jpg

    The troll has superb handling and feel on all but the most nasty of trails.
    But, you already know that !

    It works perfectly. Has a gear for everything but the very steepest which I couldn't sit and spin for anyways. I'm a Clydesdale slowly getting into shape.

    If anybody has a suggestion for suspension fork choices, please give them to me as I'm looking for something...?

    You know, if your current set up is working ok for most of your riding, maybe an answer is just a fatter tire up front.

    If you're set on a fork, I really like my Fox Terralogic.
