    Decisions suck!

    Here's my dilemna. I just blew out my Stratos S-8 forks and between man-hours and the fact that I have out dated S-8 forks that Stratos does not have parts for it will end up being 200$+ to have them repaired. My LBS will sell me junior t's for under 400$ or super t's for about 550$. My ride is a heavy Bullit (or at least it was with the S-8 up front).

    I do mostly DH and I was planning on getting a new ride within the next couple of months (probably a Turner DHR) and the forks would not be going on the new ride. I'm just trying to make a quick decision cause I'm going into withdrawals from not riding.

    So what would you crazy mo-fos do in my situation?!

    At least the Super T is worth sumthin wherever it goes. The Junior T is not worth the $400 IMHO but is a better option than wasting $200 on an old abused fork that is worth nothing even after you spend the 200 bones to fix it...

    To add to the confusion, you can also get a Manitou Kingpin for about $450 with TPC+, it is a little heavy though.
    This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.

    You can get a slightly used Shiver in 400-500 range. JrT: as Captain Crash said.
