    sponorship?

    is the only way to get sponsored for free riding by actually riding in comps or will companies still sponsor you even if you don't compete? i was wondering because i haven't ever ridden in any comps but was thinking about trying to get sponsored.

    You gotta think...what's in it for the company? They sponsor to get their products/name noticed. They aren't just going to sponsor you for the fun of it.

    Maybe send in a vid to some companies or something? Im not sure how you would go about it but that could help maybe. What comps are there to ride in besides dh races and stuff? all the ones I hear about are invitationals, but thats proabably why I only hear about those...

    thats true to. you have to be someone or become someone that people will think "hey he's good and rides that frame so maybe they are really good" some thing like that.

    The Super T you have is really a very good fork. I'd take that fork over a Fox 40 or a Boxer unless i was entering a fashon contest instead of a race
