    Neither go with a non inverted fork like the 888rc. They are much stiffer.

    So you're saying that you don't need to "test drive" a risse champ fork to know that the Shiver is better?

    I've never used a risse champ fork...so how can I persuade/dissuade people to buy/not buy it?

    because if you know the history and previous ownership, not to mention shear availability and support on the market. If they are equal performance, it's much easier to suggest the mainstream product.

    like i said, i've never owned a Yugo (ok, 98% of those here are probably too young to know better...)

    zedro, I'm sure that's EXACTLY what all these guys were thinking when they suggested the shiver...

    but, yes you are probably right...I don't know much about risse...I just get tired of people promoting "mainstream" stuff when if you do a little research you can find better performing products from lesser known companies... although that's not always the case I suppose...

    some of us have been around long enough to know others who have, and Risse isnt known for their reliability like the Shiver is. Risse is barely on the radar for a reason i believe...

    Go with the shiver, I asked around and my friend rode a risse and he sayd that it wasnt impressive and nothing stood out.

    Go with the shiver or an 888 Rc. I have ridden bolth and liked them all. but out of all the forks I have ridden .... the freeride double clamp Fox fork was my fav.

    i have actaully road a risse champ, there huge forks. they seem pretty sticky though to me and not buttery smooth. but maybe it only felt that way becuase it was set up for someone alot bigger than me
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!
