    What Forks Are Y'all Running On Your Escapes?

    I'm building up an Escape, and need a fork. What are you guys (and gals) using? How's it working out? Recomendations? Anything to sell cheap? I'm 130#, want to do trail/ light FR/ a little DJ on the bike.

    I have an '03 Manitou Black Elite on mine. I like it a lot, it's a nice upgrade over the Manitou Magnum that came with the bike stock.

    I think I'd blow a Black up pretty fast. About the Zoke DJ, I wasn't too impressed with the one on my friends Norco Rampage. He has a 150mm DJ3. Kevin, Why are you reccomending it?

    I second the pike, I ran everything from a z-1 to a 66 on mine and the hight of the z-1 was perfect but the pike is a much better all around fork ( more adjustable)

    Good luck

    I ended up getting a smoking deal on a 130mm Dirt Jumper 1 off ebay. I'd have loved a Pike, but I can't afford one. The DJ has served me well so far.
