    Help With Spec For Dos Niner

    I just ordered a 22" dos niner, and before I spec it, I would appreciate any advice.
    Im 6'6", 215 lbs. Id like to know which fork and weeelset i should get.
    Im loking at a Reba or Marzocchi MX.
    Also, do you like the avid juicy 7 or hope mini monos??

    With the fork, I'd suggest the Reba. Brakes.. Someone else will have to chime in as I'm a mechanical disc user.
    MTBR is serious stuff.
    You never get better until you get out of your comfort zone.

    i agree.....having tried XTR disc, Magura Marta, and Hopes in terms of non FR or DH brakes, I definitely prefer the Hopes, period. Another excellent option, which I have on my trailbike, are Magura Louise FR brakes. They are awesome stoppers...and can be found cheap. The Louise with 180 front / 160 rear may be the optimal combo dollar for dollar and power. While heavier than Hope Minis, they are right around the weights of Juicys or perhaps even lighter with the 180/160 combo.

    there is NO comparison between Juicy's and Hope Mini's.

    The Mini's are 12x the brake of the Juicy's. Never go back once you try Hope.

    brakes

    Hope's are da bomb. I just installed a set on my new Leviathan and could not be happier. Why not try a Maverick SUC 32 fork?
