    If you have another youngin gonna be in need of a small eventually, you may as well go for one of these, especially if you have a 135 QR wheel lying around.

    Fits a 2.5 Ehline on Arch Mk3. Will not fit a 29x2.2 Ikon. But I have one built up with a 700x43c gravel Fling in the rear. Room for the 50c I have planned.

    Even with the rear wheel, it's still a hundo cheaper than a TJ (and for good reason. The Timberjack versatility is why I like em. Alas, none in stock, so we source what we can). Our second Brand X frame will be here next week. It's gonna get this rear wheel with a Krampus fork and the stock i29 from the front of a Deore 29 TJ.

    can anyone confirm the DHR II 29x3.0 fits the rear on the timberjack? I know they measure closer to 2.8 so I'm assuming it should work

    Need fork reccomendations

    I purchased a 2019 Timberjack NX Eagle back in April from my LBS and took a crash into a tree and apparently bent the steering tube on my fork. Tried to drop the handlebars below where the bend was but was unsuccessful.

    Any fork recommendations out there that work with 27.5+ but leave the option open to switch to 29s later? Seems like the general consensus is the Fox 34 but have also seen lots of Z2 Bombers mentioned.

    Rockshox Pike.

    The Fox 34 leaves A LOT to be desired, IMO.

    The Pike Select is a lot of fork for the $$ and can easily be upgraded down the line to the top of the line damper if you decided to go that route. But that might be overkill unless you like to tinker and adjust your fork a lot. The standard Charger damper is good if you're a "set it and forget it" kind of rider.

    If you want the best and want it now, the Pike Ultimate is your ticket.

    you might be able to buy the new parts to get your fork back to normal. Could you post a picture of what bent? I am curious

    For new forks... i don't know of any 27.5+ fork that does not also work as a 29" fork. I'd recommend the Pike, fox 34, fox 36 or Marzocchi z1 but my personal preference is fox.

    Just don't ask in the Shocks & Suspension forum, they will tell you all about how the two most popular brands are all wrong and you have to get custom tuning and a bunch of accessories or a Manitou

    Even though my bike is waiting in the shop for warranty parts, I still believe that the Z2 I bought for my Tjack really made it come alive. Anything is better than the stock fork, but it all comes down to your budget.
    My budget was around $500, so I didn't want to buy a 34, but if you want to spend $700-$900, a 34 or Pike would be your best options.

    The really fundamental dividing line between the grades of forks is that the inexpensive ones shove oil through a hole. That's Turn Key. Some of them open more or fewer holes or make the hole bigger with adjustment dials. That's Motion Control. The response is linear - force makes pressure makes flow allows movement, all proportional.

    The expensive ones have shims by the hole that deflect to allow more oil to pass at higher speeds, making it possible to turn big hits very soft. After that it's all debates about the "correct" tuning of that response, and extra adjustments and convenience features.

    Some versions of MC in the past used shims or allowed tuning of the lockout blowoff feature to tune the high speed response. But they're gone now.

    well due to frame availability I'm going to have to go with the Chameleon now. Don't want to swing a space metal build on a frame i've never ridden and cant wait till 2022. LBS found me the last XL chameleon frame in fog so well see how that goes. At least I can try before I buy this way.
