    Good job! 03' Super T or Sherman Slider Plus

    Which fork would better suite a 140 lb. guy who mainly freerides, but also does DH and DJ?

    I think you should go for the Slider, it has SPV... but it depends, what kind of riding do you like (drops, speed, jumps)
    If I were you, I would go for the Slider

    Forky forks

    For strictly DH, I'd fo for the marzocchi, if you want to pedal the thing, go for the slider. I had a 03 supert on my kona last year, and went to the slider this year, the bike is so much nicer to ride especially with spv in the rear too.

    Go for the Slider...

    ...all things created equal...the limited tire clearence of the Super T would be the deciding factor.

    Slider plus has rather limited tire clearance as well. I think a 2.7 on the Slider looks sketchier than on the Super T.

    I'm trying to make this same decision and after seeing the clearance my friend's new Slider I may just upgrade my Boxxer.. LOL.
    I really identify with you...SO MUCH.
