Bike came stock with v's if I remember right. And v's are better for tricking, if thats what he is into. Much easier to setup for barspins and such. I also find it easier to nollie with v's, I feel like I have more control over my brake.

Those would be my reasons, and in fact are the reason I am switching to v's in the front.

Get a set of djers to start. They are great forks for urban and tricking. Past that, I would get a set of jrT's...but then again I have told you this already.

The one I have would cost about $450 USD, got mine though for $100 off, because of working at the shop I got it from and IMBA member discount.

Sweet bikes fellas. I'd love one, even though I don't really ride like those are meant to be ridden.

Hey Danka, how you liken that new Iced Earth album?

Dude I've got the same Roast as you. I've got 2001 Z4 on it and avid arch rivals. Not the best set-up, but it works fine. If you are into urban riding at all, I'd recommend some Hookworms. I've got them on my bike and it makes it feel like a completely different animal. It feels more like a road bike speed wise. Gurgus.
