    Ow ya big time. It comes stock on Norco Shore Bikes so you can be sure it will handle alot at least 12 foot drops. It is also light as it has air assist and coils so it would do good for some urban jamming. 6inches of butter smooth travel thats the way to go for an affordable fork.

    Well that depends. Its a good fork for a budget minded person. Its not a Manitou Sherman Breakout buts its a good fork all the same. I haven't heard anything bad about it. And I suppose people who are used to riding $1000 dollare forks may feel that it is a bit lacking. However I like it, I don't personally own one but I have checked them out and they are excellent looking and kick but preforming.

    Here is a link to some stuff about the Stance. The fork is absolutely beautiful looking. http://www.answerproducts.com/items....d=1&itemid=128

    The Marizzochi fork is also an excellent fork choice. I would say in the end what do you want, a single crown 6 inch travel FR fork, or a 7 inch travel double crown FR fork. I personally think i am going to get the Stance just because it is so beautiful and because has alot of the same technology Manitou uses on their Dorado, and Sherman line.

    I also would like to mention ( not to freak you out) but I would email Kona and see if the 03 Stinkys are capable of carrying a 7 inch travel fork. This is because most of the time the compaines spec their bikes with a fork that has just the right amount of travel and anything less or more can throw the steering off.

    Both the Stance (except DC one) and Jr.T have crappy damping. The Stance is a budget fork, nothing more and nothing less.

    How does the stance flow compare to the marz z.1 fr3?

    Jenson has the stance for 330 and the z.1 for about 450... is it worth the extra 100+ bux?

    I would go with the JR.T. This is because Marzzochi rules the FR world, unless you get a Boxxer or a Manitou Sherman ect... Pay the extra and get the Marzzochi, but check to make sure it is compatible for your bike, other wise you may install it and find that you have extrememly sloppy steering.
