    Fork Choice Paralysis - x-post AM

    Really just looking for advice since Ive read reviews and think I know what I would be getting with any of these....okay, here are the choices and prices

    Zoke Z150 FR SL (used) $200
    Zoke AM SL (new) $375
    Zoke AM 1 (used) $300 (running the 110-130 now, I want 150)
    Pike 454 (new) $430
    Nixon Super (new) $350 (not too sure on this one)

    The thing is that I have been steadily adding weight to my Heckler and want to keep things from getting worse (recently put some Outlaws on - great wheels but not super light). Im not too big at 5-9" 165# and Im pretty smooth having been a hardtailer/bmx'er all along. I can go TA or QR with the Outlaws so no biggie there.

    Bottom line, my riding is generally limited to 6' and under drops or drops to nice trannies. For a combo of weight, performance, and price, which way would you go?

    Have you considered Fox Vanilla 130R's.
    They are under 4lbs and are 410$ US or 515$ Canadian

    Ive been downhilling/freeride/dj/urban with mine and I luv em
    biggest drop so far is 4-5 feet and was no prob whatsoever

    But I gotta agree also...if you can get a good condition Z150 FR
    at that price...grab it fast

    cheers
