    Just one more thing. Is there any cheaper options because I'n not sure yet how much I'll have to spend and I'd rather not go second hand with things like suspension?

    If your going to be pushing yourself and the bike, dont skimp on important things like your fork.

    My DJ saved me SO many times.

    Yeah I know thats what I'm trying to make my mum see. The fork I have at the moment is a piece of crap and it bottoms out with the smallest hits so I want a good fork so that I can do bigger things and ride to my potential but my mum's beeing a ***** like usual about spending money even though its my freaking money and if I keep using this fork I'm gonna f*ck myself up.

    You would really be surprised on some of the amazing deals you can find on ebay. Some items may have never seen the dirt and could be 50%+ off retail. Buying used is a great thing!

    Yeah I usually buy used items, I always buy from ebay, but some things I like to steer clear from, I guess your right, if you find a good fork thats in good condition and hasn't had much use, I could find a bargain.

    Brand new MZ dropoffs seem to be going really cheap lately. People love teh performance but hate that topout clunk. I'd live with it.
