    Anyone know what kind of fork this is?

    Picked up this bike on CL about 3 years ago. Its been sitting in my dad's garage since then. Visiting my dad again and got the bike all tuned up. Does anyone know what type of fork this is? Its a 60mm downhill fork with "DXH 600" written on the side, followed by XD 60 (which obviously refers to the travel).

    Looks like a cheapo from Wally World.

    Better pics will confirm, but yeah, nothing to get excited about. Would likely be good to keep your boat in one place at least!

    Nope, definitely not a Walmart bike. Its an old Iron Horse with Shimano STX components. My guess is its probably from the mid 1990s, and the fork probably would have been state of the art back then, since the fork "brags" about 60mm travel. Here is another photo from a different angle.

    The bike has Canti levers but is running V-Brakes F+R--looks like someone pulled a fork and brakes off a wallyworld bike and slapped them on a mid level IH.

    Not original to the bike.

    Might be a Mozo, which was a, basically, Wally world dual crown fork for some market they felt existed.

    Any way you slice it, yeah,nothing special I'm afraid, no offense intended....

    Back in the late 90's only a few companies made dual crown forks for "free-ride" bikes. Manitou, Rockshox and RST. That fork appears to be none of the above and looks, as Mendoncycle stated, to be a cheap department store version that was put onto that bike.
    It is the Right of the People to Alter or to Abolish It.
