    I do not have a stinky with a 888, but I believe the (02) stinky has @ 67 head angle with a super T on it. The 8" 888 is significantly taller, so expect it to rake out the head angle to at least 65.5 - 66 maybe even more. This in turn will make the steering even more slower/sluggish.

    Running a 7" 888 will help with that problem, or you could get the go-ride crowns for the 888 to help as well.

    Except the 888 has better damping cartridges then the SuperT, more tire clearance then the SuperT, and of course the ever important way cool look (OK, the SuperT loks way cool as well)

    Seriously though, the 888 is a better fork then the SuperT, is it worth the extra $$$? I feel it is and have one on order for my new bike I have being built up (and yes, I tried both the SuperT and the 888 on the same bike)
