    cove frames

    i am getting a 2003 cove g-spot soon and i was just wondering what is the best fork to run to balance out the bike. it has 6 inches of rear travel. i would like to get a something like a super t pro or a jr t. i ride mainly freeride plus i am about 250 so i know a stiffer spring and a heavier wieght oil will be need. also would the head tube on the frame hold up to a monster t or not. Thanks for you help Brandon

    Second vote for Shiver. Or even a 170mm 888. Jr's and Super's have 32mm stansions. I think a Shiver or 888 would feel a lot more stable at your size. I think she'll take it.

    The cove will take it. I'm definitely not as heavy as you, but I used to own a 02 gspot for about 2 years and I rode it hard.

    And watching Geoff Gulevich at Monster park rip up on his g spot only made me miss my cove frame and wish I didn't sell it.

    Here he is killin it.

    Definitely send in that rear shock to PUSH and you'll be loving it even more.

    make sure to keep some spare derailleur hangers in your toolbox

    If you are wanting to know anything about the frame give cove a call. They are really nice and have answered all of my questions. One thing that helps is that they are just a bike shop that makes bikes so they have that nice local feel. I have been riding an 03 g-spot since last december with a super t and have been loving it. Oh and cove was nice enough to put their phone number on the inside if the chainstay so there really is no excuse to not call them.
