    Sherman Flick Plus

    I just got the fork im gonna be putting on my p.3,a sherman flick plus. It seems like a really nice fork, and it was affordable too(i got it for around 400 canadian,ive got some hook ups). Its probably gonna be set around 6 inches,that wont make the p.3 to steep will it? And this fork isnt thru axle,is that a big deal? last just post any comments on the fork. thanks

    Sorry dont got any pics, soon ill have either pics of the fork/frame or the bike just built up.

    The fork is sprung way too softly for most adults. Also the firm is barely stiffer than the medium: get an x-firm spring if you need to upgrade.

    Other than that, it's been treating me very well. I think it's the perfect Moab fork unless you're so sickter gnar that you need a dual-crown.

    Do you guys think it would be too plush for someone who's 120lbs? I'm only 115, and maybe 120 with gear.

    Thanks.

    I think it would be fine for a 115/120lbs rider...

    I'm 185lbs - I ran the standard spring for about 15 minutes, and then swapped in the Firm one. I need to double check the sag again in a few more hours of ride time to see how things are breaking in... but when I checked when things were new, I was right around to just above the max spec for recommended sag. It was hard to get an accurate measurement because things were "sticky".

    I may give the X-Firm a try just for the heck of it...

    I'm about 190 and x-firm is perfect for me. If you're 120# the medium should be fine.

    Flick+ spring weights: FYI
