S&m

Are S&M forks guaranteed for life? I was thinking about getting the XLT fork, and it would be critical to know if they are guaranteed for life or not. If not, then I guess the Odyssey Dirt Fork would not be a bad backup.

Yes, I know the Odyssey fork did, I just did not know if the XLT did because it is very light (I believe it is the lightest fork on the market). Thanks.

S&M and Odyssey forks both have warrantys, i dont know if there for life though, but i do know that your not going to bend or snap one, so it shouldnt be a problem.

For the millionth time - a lifetime warranty is usually for the life of the product, not your lifetime. Think about it.

duh. why would you need a new product when your dead?

Odyssey has better customer service. both companys make great products.

I've seen both forks break too. no part is indestructable.

S&M had a 100 or 1,000 year warranty on their Pitchforks, or at least the add in BMX PLUS! said they were serious, haha. That was maybe two years ago though...
