    new fork...no idea

    ok well i am looking at forks to go on my hardrock sport (to replace the RST gilla 100mm) since i plan to make it into a DJ but i have no idea what to put on...i was thinking a pike because of the adjustability and it looks so beefy and bad a** but there may be better options i would like it adjustable and strong.....weight is no issue (aslong as it is not a boat anchor) and i have about $500 to spend.......i will not be getting this until atleast feb. but i figure i start looking not....hple me please

    the pike is a good choice. but to have the higher-end forks suck as the pike, dj1, dj2, etc, your going to need a 20mm hub for the 20mm thru axle that goes with the forks.

    yes, you need the 20mm front hub, but you can find those cheap, I think there was a thread on here resently about cheap 20mm thru axle hubs. Then you would just have to pay for the wheel build onto the new hub. Anyway, when you say you want it adjustable, do you mean "adjustable feeling" or "adjustable travel"? Most good dj forks have adjustments like preload, but not many have travel adjustment. I think the pike is the only one. Other options that dont have adjustable travel are rockshox argyle (rockshoxs new dj specific fork) and Manitou gold label. My personal favorite is the gold label. plus you can get it in quick release so you dont have to buy a new hub, or since you can get them for like $350 on Pricepoint (i think?), you could still get 20mm thru axle and you would have extra money for a good front hub and wheel build

    Either a pike or a used sherman firefly (110mm-150mmish). XSL_Will knows the right sherman to buy used that's adjustable.

    Cummings is right: Pricepoint sells Gold Labels new for 350. That's where I'd get one.

    Pretty much everything else for DJ isn't adjustable.

    the 07' pike 454 u-turn is $384 on pricepoint....o yea i meant adjustable travel (i will do trail riding once every blue moon so i need a little bit more travel)

    o yea and the gold label kind of worries me because of 80mm (100mm is what i want) and the blue knob on the bottom...i would be afaraid to bust that off

    thats a good deal. too bad you said you were waiting till february. but, it could be cheaper by then , so keep looking. also, most online order sites have "price check" so keep that in mind when searching other sites.

    EX-PEN-SIVE. The only one in your price range is a 32. Its Quick release, the 36 thru-axle is alot more. But the 32 is mint. Fox is known for their buttery smoothness. As long as your not doing much freeriding on it and you stick to djs and trails, it would be good.

    oh ya, the one im looking at is this one.

    and i just realized it has 140mm travel, no travel change. I would just stay away from fox right now.

    There is no travel adjustable Sherman that works for hard use. Jumping it in the lowered position is guaranteed to break the travel adjuster. I always permanently reduce them.

    Preload sucks. All it does it make for harsher inital travel without actually changing bottom-out or spring rate. And putting too much preload on can cause the spring to bind and snap.

    The Fox uses thin lower castings which I have seen blow out. And the crown/steerer/stanchion assemblies get creaky under hard use. Great dampening though. The 36 really is more of a aggro trail fork than a huck fork, and I think it's too tall for urban.

    Pike is awesome. But you'll need a new hub. The Recon/Revelation/Reba are all available in QR. The Reba holds up amazingly well seeing as how it's designed around an XC platform. Find one with the solid crown and steel steerer, not the aluminum steerer and hollow crown. I also suggest coil rather than air. If you're going to 20mm TA anyways, check out the Argyle for dedicated DJ/Urban.

    I like Manitou forks. The TPC+ Shermans were amazing. All of the forks are very easily tuneable. You can play with travel reduction, shimstacks, etc. The SPV forks could be devolved and whatnot. The Gold Label uses a TPC derived system. It's pretty good. It's oriented around urban (it's even got a grind plate for it).

    Don't even get me started on Marzocchi forks. Heavy, tall, and flexy. I've owned 4, broken 3. No warranty. They always give us a run-around with customer warranties at the shop. And I've worked at 3 shops now.

    And finally... Don't rule out rigid forks.

    Yup, you could get QR, and save $100, or use the hunderd to upgrade to 20mm. Choices, Choices. www.ride-this.com has gold labels

    QR- Quick release. Hub uses a skewer that clamps onto slots on the fork legs.

    20mm thruaxle- used on heavier duty forks. Runs a 20mm axle through the hub which is part of the fork. Stiffer because it connects the bottom of the fork legs, where a QR forks' legs are not connected. 1st pic QR, 2nd pic 20mm thru axle

    instead of spending a shitload on a super high-end fork, settle for a used sherman or something like that (maybe a rigid?) and buy a better frame

    Agreed, why spend that much on a fork that costs as much as your bike???

    I'd go 20mm, I've tried both and like the steering precision and stiffness of it.

    you don't have to use QR skewer on QR dropout forks. Use a 10mm bolt on axle, similar to bmx. it will stiffen it up quite a bit, but on susp. still won't quite match 20mm, but will be plenty strong in my opinion on a stiff short travel fork for street. It's long travel forks thay get much more flex with QR.

    well derfernerf, its up to you, depending on how much you wanna spend. If you get the 20mm thru axle, you will get a stiffer ride which is great, but you will have to upgrade your front hub to a 20mm. You can find 20mm hubs starting at the $50-60 range. Or you can sacrifice a little bit of of stiffness and get the QR, and not have to buy a new hub. remember, the fork internals are the same (the will work function the same) The only difference is the stiffness.

    Someone asked why you were upgrading to a nice fork when you should maybe be upgrading your frame and you replied by not having enough for frame and fork. That is what I woulda thought at first too. but for $250 (if you bought the QR fork for 250, u have 250 left) you could get a better frame too.

    Azonic Steelhead- http://www.beyondbikes.com/bb/ItemMa...5&MatrixType=1

    Mountain Cycle Rumble 04. (regular $500 for $200!) http://www.beyondbikes.com/bb/ItemMa...5&MatrixType=1

    I suggest that MC rumble. great deal, 3 sizes still available, and you can get new fork too

    Forget a revelation. Go for a pike at the same price.

    There's nothin' wrong with QR. It's SOOO easy to remove your wheel. The 20mm through will be stronger, like previously said.

    The hardrock most likely has a qr axel.
    I dont mean to thread jack but im getting that 80mm gold label from nashbar and i was wondering what would be a good 10mm axel for my hub? Any specific brand you recomend?

    Anything will work fine (as long as it's the right diameter and thread). Axles for tandem bikes hold up pretty well.

    There are two types of axles really, one for sealed cartridge bearings, and one for loose ball bearings.

    I have found stances are usually better than dropoffs for djins. Just make sure your getting the one that has 4 inches of travel.

    the stance static fork from manitou is extremly strong. I've been riding mine 4X for almost a year now, holds up really well.

    someone mentioned the goldlabel on nashbar or whatever, for $250.00 do consider that the version that you're getting is fluid flow VS TPC+. now the fluid flow works just fine and will feel better than most dampening systems anyway, the TPC+ is going to be a little better. depends on your weather too. up here in cold wet oregon (wich it is not right now ) my static/ stance flow tend to freeze up in cold weather, just get kinda sticky and a lot more stiff. TPC+ doesnt have this problem so much. but it can never get as bad as a frozen Marz fork.

    for what you're putting on the bike (i'm assuming its a hardrock ?) to replace a gila, the bike was probably designed for 85-120mm of travel and the pikes 140mm might be a little too much for it (even tho u turn would fix that) I would get something a little more DJ/trail/park oriented. the stance and gold label forks are a pretty bombproof series and can be used for freeride (ex, I took my P. with a stance static to whistler) but they're a little more happy for trail and DJ use.

    I mean if you can get away with spending $300.00 for a gold label instead of 500 for a pike that you'll do the same thing with. then you could build up yourself a nice 20mm wheel to go with it.

    just my 2 cents.

    thnaks...yep it is going on my hardrock yea i think the pike it out of the question since im not babysitting anymore but i am looking into the stance and the goldlabel...does the stance have a 20mm axle?or is it QR...BTW nobody told me at what point a QR will bend(beyond rideable) or break. thanks

    yea, the stance does have the option of 20mm also a 1.5 steerer if you wanted. but they also make 1 1/8 models to fit 90% of the bikes out there

    QR is pretty strong. I DH'ed whistler with a ritchey pro QR hub in the back. that was a tremendous amount of abuse for it, it didnt brake or anything. like they're bolth strong enough for DJ and street. but the 20mm is a lot stiffer. some people like some dont. me personally I dont really like it as much, thats why I got a rockshox revelation (might be a good option for your bike, but also again, a little tall and not as bombproof)

    QR is good and strong, less tampering is needed as well, if you want to take your wheel off, you dont have to have a set of allens and a torque wrench to get it back on.

    no prob. and if you dodnt like the flex of QR you can always swich out to a bolt on hub. wich is a lot more stiff. kinda halfway between QR and 20mm

I DH'ed whistler with a ritchey pro QR hub in the back. that was a tremendous amount of abuse for it, it didnt brake or anything. like they're bolth strong enough for DJ and street. but the 20mm is a lot stiffer. some people like some dont. me personally I dont really like it as much, thats why I got a rockshox revelation (might be a good option for your bike, but also again, a little tall and not as bombproof)

    QR is good and strong, less tampering is needed as well, if you want to take your wheel off, you dont have to have a set of allens and a torque wrench to get it back on.
    You don't need a torque wrench to take off or put on a bolt-on... You might want it for a thru-axle, but you don't need it. And you only need one allen, or one socket.

    QRs stretch and are flexy, they don't hold the wheel nearly as securely. When a QR fails is subjective. It depends on the QR itself and largely on the rider. A clydesdale hack on a Ti skewer will obviously not hold up so well.

    no dude, I know. what I was saying is you need wrenches for a 20mm. QR is stupid simple.

    no, it would require getting new lowers. wich then it would probably cost more than the fork (though Manitou is extremly reasonable.)

    Do you have a bike shop near you?? It would be much easier to take it to them than have us explain it step by step. It will cost very little if anything at all to have it done.

    BTW, did you take a look at the link to the rumble frame?? Its a good buy and with 500 u could get it and the fork.
