    I'm in a pickle.

    I have a 2006 Yeti AS-X..


    I'm really wanting to put a bigger fork on the bike but I don't know if it will be beneficial and/or worth it. Currently I have a Fox 36 Van RC2 which is pretty big but I have the urge to go bigger. I've found a couple deals on ebay and shopping around for 888's for around 300-400 dollars..

    Is it worth it?

    Like a Totem? A 66? Or a 888, 40, Boxxer or a Travis?

    By the way, I'm in a pickle, too...

    I'd either want to go the route of an 888 or a 40 but I'm not really fiscally ready to get a 40

    Used 888's can be had or cheap. Used 40's are usually still between $600-900.

    The 888 is substantially heavier though, so be careful.

    We all know 888's are better than Totems

    I'd try to look for a 66 RC2X or a 66RC3. Single crown is the way to go. 7" is still pretty good travel for most stuff. With a dual fork there is restriction in turning and x-ups. Don't know if you care about that but thats just my $0.02

    I have an AS-X that used to be my only bike, I rocked a shiver on the front most the time. The bike is just too short wheelbase and travel(7” my ass) wise to spec it out as a dh sled.

    My AS-X now rocks a 55 and rides way better. The fork really compliments the rear and the bike is much quicker in every scenario and just feels balanced. I would leave well enough alone the dimensions just aren’t right.

    If you want to go bigger I think you would be looking at a new frame, My DHR is far superior in every way when it comes to gravity. Don’t get me wrong, I love my as-x, it rips UP and down, best all round bike around.

    I should also mention that I also live in the Denver area like you do.

    Now if only you were in a nutshell. "Hey that's me, I'm in a nutshell. How did I get into this bloody thing? What kind of nut has a shell this big."

    I'd try to find some low SC fork if anything just not to ruin the geo. 08 marz models are lower if I'm not wrong so they may be the way to go.
