    Good job! New ride

    I picked it up a few week ago. I would have posted before, but I didn't have a computer. I plan to get junior T, but that will be in a while.

    I have seen them take a 888rc, 200mm just fine. They hold up without a problem.

    I wore an MZ Comp out in 2 weeks.


    You should be able to trade up to a DJ3 for $100 and then go to a 150mm travel setting if you wanted to...

    Well I don't really ride big drops yet(I have done 2 footer and don't plan to go any bigger til I get a better fork) and I'm a pretty small guy so I'm to worried the fork. I don't want to f*** up that fork because I plan to put that one on my XC bike.

    I've riden it 3 times and they were short rides, it's been real cold outside. I'm not going to it to the mountain til I get a new fork. But I don't have the $ to buy a fork right now

    ohh god, dont ever go with the kingpin. its sitting in my garage, covered in oil and locked up after a freaking urban ride. I thought it would be worth it, since I got mine new, for 25 dollars. it wasnt even worth that. go for the jr T or a sherman slider. try to find an old boxxer or something. congrats on getting a spec, I was going to get the 26" version, but I picked up a P.2 instead.
