    shocking machine (new fork)

    like 2 days ago i talked with the parents and i'm sticking with my riding style and bike. yesterday (i found out today) that i got a new (to me) fork. my padre traded some machining/welding time for it. it is a 2005 jr.t with super t internals, it feels pretty good but i need a new whell before it can go on my bike, i also don't have a camera that works so i did my best with p.shop to show the major scratches, and changed a picture of my bike with my friends '03 jr.t.( and yes, i got crazy carlos from copeland's fork) i'm prety excited and i'll try to get some real pictures...

    In a parking lot test my junior T feels better than an 888R, but then when you downhill, completely different story.

    This is how you tell the difference between the two, super t has little pins on the adjuster knobs, junior T does not.

    at first i though that was like a trick picture where it tells you to find the difference, but they're the same thing.

    congrats.

    I'm pretty sure

    that no matter what fork you put on that bike, you're gonna get bucked off and break a bone or two . . . might even get knocked out!


    opps, already happened.

    wait till you heal up and push your folks for a better bike (like a bighit or an Ironhorse)

    it'll ride better, you'll like it more and have more fun

    I used to ride and x2 with a junior T and loved it. Theres nothing about the bike itself that bucks you off if you ride right. And adding that fork to it makes a good difference cuz it leans it back a bit more for those steep landings.

    not that there is anything wrong with

    an x2, but if mom and dad are getting you new stuff you might as well ask for a better frame while you are at it. (a better shock would help any bike, technology is a good thing when it comes to suspension control) I'm talking about the rear not the fork, 'cause the fork you are getting should be nice and you can put it on lots of different bikes.

    What would help is a frame that actually fits, kid is like 5'9 on a huge frame.
