    04 Super T Pro or 04 Z150?

    Really want to ditch my crappy 02 Jr. T for something better. Riding will mostly be downhilling at moderate speeds over very rocky terrain, mostly embedded rocks with small drops. Occasional trail riding to get to downhill areas. Bike has 6 inch of rear travel. Both forks prices have been cut significantly as of late. Z 150 is appealing for light weight and better trail riding. Super T for stiffness and extra travel....skeptical of the cartridge setup.

    Super T, bugs..

    having had all three over the last 4 years. At speed the Jr T will hammer your wrists and hands. Super T makes that all smooth. The 150 I found really flexy, but the one I had was when I met you in '00, so it might be better now?

    I've never run across an unhappy Super T user. Stiff and plush, just the way ewe like 'em

    I run a Z150 on my Chaparral and I love the thing to death, but I just bought a Super T to replace it.

    Reasons:
    - With the Z150, in severe steeps I always feel like I'm going fly over bars and have to hang off the bike to compensate.
    - A few hard crashes have caused the bars to spin around and snap cables and brake levers off. That wouldn't happen with a DC.
    - I've started riding more DH type stuff, and the taller fork and adjustable crowns will make a more friendly DH geo.
    - Killer deals right now. Couldn't pass it up.

    The Z150 will be moved to my trail bike as I refuse to part with it.

    Z150 = more all around/trail
    Super T = DH and gravity.

    It all depends on what you ride.
