    What the funk kind of erector set crap is that?

    Looks like a giant rigid fork with some boing built it. G-G-G-G-G-Ghetto!

    Should've gone with a Monster.

    Yeah I saw that.

    But it still looks so hack. Couldn't they design something else. How does that tin can work?

    I keep hearing the theme from Sanford and Son for some reason.

    Looks to me like a Lawill linkage-style fork. If I'm not mistaken the design has been around for a while.

    I'm thinking he knows this. I'm guessing he was just commenting on the idiocy of using a mtb fork on a dirtbike. Even though I think you were just joking about him using that fork. I think lol.
