    I need Help

    I have a 2004 kona stinky. It has drop off triples. I know that it isent the best (or close to the best) fork. I want to get a jr.T But my pearents wont let me get a new fork. I need to come up with reasons to get one. My biggest drop is 10 to 11 feet i hit it once and i do a 8 foot road gap drop to. Im thinking jr T or somtihng around thee but most likey a jr.T

    i have come up with the fallowing reasons.
    1. The fork is weak ive seen broken ones
    2. ive heard orf lowers falling off
    3. They are down to 400 now.
    4. The jr.t has more travel

    please keep adding onto the list for me.

    thankyou.

    you'd have more reason to upgrade if you were trying to get a better fork. the junior and drop-offs are pretty much in the same class, beside the travel difference. they'll most likely feel very much the same.

    now a slider+ or a super-T; those forks give you plenty reason to upgrade.

    that would be better than your d.o.t, and better than the junior t.

    i wouldn't say that 2002 is that old. it will work fine. look around for an '03 or '04 super t if you want. but if you care about colors then get a crappy performing fork with a cool paint job. it sounds like you don't want the 2002 super t, so don't get it. if you look around you can find really good deals on forks. good luck.

    [spam] One more reason, I can sell you a '03 Junior T for only $300, hardly used! Send me a e-mail [email protected] [spam]

    Don't keep the fork, buy someones used.
