    Fork Question

    I figures I would get best response here for this question. For those of you who have coilers or similar, what fork are you riding on?

    most are riding the stock fork (drop off)

    upgrade

    bigger drops....66 (changes Geo)

    or get a Z-1

    The Pike is actually a great match for the o4 Coiler, but if you have one of the newer version, it makes the front end just a little steep. Still, it compliments the bike well. If you have the cash, look into a Lyrik.

    just picked up an 05 coiler and was wondering about it but from what I'm reading I am going to have to make some rear shock adjustments because I weigh 265 pds

    yeah, i have had my 06 coiler for about 8 months now with the stock drop off fork and i feel fine with it. It is relatively stiff, but almost a little too plush... Because the coiler is more of a "light" freeride bike, upgrading the fork to a 66 woudl make it much more adept on the freeriding aspect of the sport. (would get one myself...but a little short on cash at the moment/eyeing an 07 7Point3 for next year )
    overall, i really like the coiler and am able to push it to its limits (actually just did a huge 9 foot drop today) and felt somewhat safe..haha

    Travis Single 150

    Got a Manitou Travis Single 150 (TPC+) on my Coiler. It's only been a few days and one ride so I can't say much about it except that it's a super fun fork to ride. It's a bit taller then the DO (Manitou:542 A-C, Marz: 539.5) and although I'm not sure about the weight, it doesn't feel heavier.
    Price is ~500$ so not too expensive.

    Its good to hear that alot of guys are still using the stock fork. I've been riding about a year now and marzocchi forks are all I really know about. I havent really did any research on any other companys.
