    Anyone ridden this fork?

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...tain+3+07.aspx Anyone tried it?

    I need a better fork for my kona shred. I am 150 lbs and like to ride a variety of stuff but mostly just trail riding with many climbs, decents, and tall roots. A few drops usually not over 3 feet for now. I need something more plush then the stock fork which feels more like a pogo stick then a shock. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have the All Mountain 3 and it is a pretty good fork.

    BUT it is the wrong fork for a Shred. Way too long and will ruin the handling of your bike.

    Have any recomendations for a shorter fork that will work with my existing hub? I would go with a 20mm thruaxle but I dont have the cash to change hubs right now or the desire really.

    that bike is a djing bike, just like the cowan and the scrap, they are all meant for 100mm of travel, and dj bike usually have either a very stiff fork such as a marz dj or a rigid fork

    if you put money into it, get air. that way you can drop the pressure for trails.

    i personnaly like coils, because you never have to fill them, they won't loose air in the course of a ride. if you feel like changing the amount of air in your fork before and after you hit the trails have fun, but i would stick with the coil or even a coil with air assist

    I thought I put the budget in there sorry. I need it below 350$ That tora looks nice I'll have to look into it. I do use the bike for some dirtjumping but for that I can always swap over to my old fork which does well at that. I need a better fork for the XC style trails that I do.
