04-17-05, 12:22 PM

Nice job ! That looks like soo much fun!
04-17-05, 12:29 PM
Chicksands! 4X and Jumping mecca in the UK! I didnt realise they had such good northshore, its great to see you putting those new halos and DJ3 to work Ement :)
04-17-05, 12:41 PM
no i dont mind. its a dj3
Nice. :D Aren't DJ3s very heavy though?
04-17-05, 12:44 PM
They are. But people who dj don't care. I don't notice the weight when i am in the air. Besides I am used to dc forks which weight about the same.
04-17-05, 12:48 PM
To be honest, i dont notice the weight anyway... I love the way my DJ's felt, and the weight was a definate penalty i was prepared to pay for the stregth, but as I said, I didnt actually notice it.
04-17-05, 01:01 PM
yeh thanks for the help choosing them cornish they ride great! :D
i dont notice the weight either they dont feel loads heavier than the RST that came with it
04-17-05, 01:22 PM

04-17-05, 01:34 PM
Great pics. Looks like a lot of work to make those things...

04-18-05, 09:50 AM
yeh you got it zeddybear yeh the hardrocks great now but i made a few updgrades. if your not doing big hucks or anything you shouldnt have to upgrade much for trail riding apart from fork and maybe brakes
04-18-05, 10:33 AM
I wish we had setups like that around me. Well, if we do I don't know where they are. Im in Malvern PA... 45 out of philly to the west, anyone know of any places like that?

04-19-05, 05:09 AM
