    2008 Orange P7 Pro

    so if anyone knows of any others please post it here, as of now i dont care what the price is, since i just want to know whats out there!

    Thanks,
    ParkerEdwards

    So I'm assuming you have a Hardrock with a 140mm fork that you've ridden for several years?

    I wouldn't own a hardrock. We all know they explode with a 140mm fork installed

    Most HRs are designed with a 100mm fork. Are you running a 140 on one? And if yes (or even if no), is that remotely dangerous?

    Just wondering
