    200mm fork for my gemini?

    would it be bad for the frame?

    888rc vs boxxer wc or team (wc is nicer but more $)

    and you all say get a rear shcok but im going to get goood components and get something with some more travel (Gracia! or Orange 223 bike i want changes every day!)
    I HATE WORK, WORK IS BAD, WORK = NO BIKE, NO BIKE = NO GOOD

    why not the orange 224. but if i were you which i am not i would put a boxxer ride it's got about 178mm not 200 but not 170. i wouldn't rake that bike out, but if i were to look into a good pedal bike with good travel for freeride i would get an uzzi.

    I have a 888 on my Gemini DH and it fits perfect. If you use the 888 with lower crowns - perfect !
    Wait for the Gracia which should come in 2006 and you'll get more travel. The question is: do YOU really need that amount of travel ? can you cope with ?
