    Dirt Jumper 1s

    what are your guys opinions and views on 2005 dirt jumper 1s? im not talkin about the 20mm ones im talkin about the 100mm travel forks.
    one of my friend has offered me his (brand new) for my 2nd hand kona blast frame, my forks (MZ COMPS 100mm) and 50.
    i think this is a really good deal, and ive been told that dirt jumpers are really good forks.
    the type of riding i do it on and off road, dirt jumps, lips etc and some skate park. should i do this deal, any comments welcome...
    cheers

    Umm, DJ1's are both 20mm and 100mm. 100mm in travel and 20mm in axel, meaning you need a special 20mm through axel hub on your front wheel - which also means that the wheel you've been using on your MZ Comps won't work as that is standard quick release.

    Personally I think your being ripped off. DJ1's are good but not worth a frame+fork+50 (they may be "brand new" but he bought them, that makes them second hand full stop), considering you'll need to buy a new front wheel as well.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.
