    New fork for the second season

    I got a killer deal on a new fork. Lucky for me, I can ride nearly year round out here in Victoria...unlike certain people from Whistler on the board.

    What started out as a new tire soon spiraled out of control and this is what I am left with. Happy Xmas to me I guess. But really, the deal was so good, I had to do it. Once I sell my old fork, this is only a $150 upgrade instead of $1000.

    What travel is that on that fork? Are you sure that fork is compatible with your head tube?

    I am pretty sure (not 100%) that brodie warranties with a dc fork. It is similar to the Kona Roast of 2002 and Kona was offering full warranties on dc forks...

    It has 7" of travel. I think the bike is designed to handle 8". Everything feels right so far, infact, better than alright, it's downright amazing. The shop has looked at it and never said anything other then "sweet ride", so I think I'm ok.
