    MRP Bartlett fork?

    There's very little review of this fork.

    Does anyone use this double crown fork?

    Good question. I would have thought these would be more popular are park/enduro rigs.

    I was looking at getting some to put on my Jekyll for the bike park but I couldn't figure out if putting a dual crown on a bike designed for a single crown would be ok. I ended up buying a mint used DH bike for not much more.

    No, or Iíd never rest on this forum, but I do think itís important to spell the subject of your post correctly especially if it is a specific product for two reasons:

    1. People searching for info on the product in the future

    2. Címon! If you want people to expend the effort to respond with quality, informed feedback, the least you could do is expend the effort to spell the name of the product correctly....

    I've got one on my YT Capra LTD. I run mine at 190mm and with the low axle to crown height it is about the same height as the Grip 2 180mm I had on it so the geometry is pretty much the same,just a hair taller.
    The first thing that stood out was how precise and solid the steering felt. Any rutted out,or smooth, berms and corners just felt way more stable and comfortable. As far as rock gardens or rough rooty terrain it holds a line really well doesn't deflect. The small bump compliance and first half of the travel is really plush. I would say the midstroke on the fox was better by a little bit.
    The weight difference from the grip 2 180mm was 1.2lbs. I was considering a coil conversion on the grip 2 which would have put it in the ballpark weight wise of the Bartlett. I went with the Bartlett because I thought it would be a more noticeable upgrade than the coil conversion and I ride a lot of park and shuttle trails in the summer months. With that said, I do climb a lot as well. The bike weighs 33.5 with a super deluxe shock and climbs really well. I also have a coil I use for DH days which adds about a pound.
    I'm still playing with the ramp control and removed one of the huck pucks, it comes stock with 2. I've only had it for a little over a month but i'm really happy with it. As far as the turning radius I have not had a problem with that. The trails I ride don't really have any tight turns where that would be an issue.
    Overall I would say that I feel like I have more control over the bike and it's more comfortable for me,helps hand fatigue too. I'm no pro or racer and not the best at explaining suspension so hopefully this helps.
    Oh, when riding your local trails be prepared to be asked by every other rider "Dual crown huh, do you really need that for these trails? " Then you can proceed to leave them in the dust on the DH
    Cheers
