    Sid fork on a pump track/street bike?

    I'm rebuilding my old P1 alloy bike to use on the pump track my wife and I are putting in at our new house. The old dj fork is a hunk of crap and needs replaced. I have a new sid I could put on. It is the new style with the 32mm stanchions. My question is, should I avoid the light xc stuff? I have a set of easton xc one single speed wheels and this sid that I could use. I just don't want to land my butt in a cast from a wheel folding or fork snapping...


    What are your thoughts?

    Cheers,
    Andy

    For light riding on a pump track, you'd likely be fine. The stuff runs more risk off getting banged up but unless you are going big you probably won't have catastrophic failure. If you keep riding and progressing, you'll want to upgrade though.

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah, this isn't going to be a huge huck bike. I'm looking for something to rally the pump track with and occasionally hit the dirt and/or skate park. I figure guys are rocking light weight builds on bmx bikes all the time and are going big. I should be fine. I guess we will find out.

    Cheers,
