    New Fork+ Review

    Just went for a first ride with my new dirt jumper 3!









    The moment I felt the fork in action, I realized how much my old fork sucked! For such a low price, the fork is amazing! It handles everything to my liking and makes every bump or jump very smooth. What is also great, is that the fork can handle everything from xc to dirt jumping (on the fork it says freeride but i wouldent exactly call it a freeride fork) with ease. My bike has changed completely! i would recommend this fork to anyone because for even my first day when the fork isint even broken in, it's just plain awsome!

    Nice, but it looks funny on a hardrock. Be prepared for it to outlast your frame if you use what the fork was intended for.

    Nice, I have a Dirtjumper 3 and they are very tough forks. My fork has surely taken a beating, it it still performs like day 1.

    Looks nice. Is there a noticable difference in wieght compared to the old fork? I've heard dirt jumpers can be quiet heavy.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.
