    Spork (suspension/fork) help

    Found an older Eastern frame to replace the beater frame I busted.

    I have a Manitou "spork" on the beater and was thinking that would be the next thing to upgrade. This one could be rebuilt and tuned I guess, but I was more curious about what travel length would be good for a pump track/street/minor dirt jump (read "until I get my groove back")

    The travel for an Eastern DJ frame would be 80mm or 100mm.

    I ended up with a Marzocchi fork. I'm gonna beat that up while I'm waiting to for a fat axle to come along.
