Mozo R500 fork

I have broken my old fork and I want to buy a new one. Because of lack of money it has to be some low-end fork. I practise light freeride and dirt jump. What are your opinions of Mozo R500 fork? Does anybody have it? What about its endurance? Thank you much

What is the price range you consider low end.

For djing and fr I wouldn't skimp on the fork unless you are looking to impress the ladies with a lack of front teeth. A dj3 isn't that much really and the security of knowing it probably won't break and is built for what you plan to do will be worth the extra money imo.

Otherwise I can't recommend anything as I wouldn't jump on anything less than a dj3. Girls like my teeth and nose too much

I would go with mael on this. freeride=drops(even if not big drops) so you are really looking for punishment if you skimp on the forks. Same with dj'ing.

About 130 USD ... I am poor student with broken fork :-) But I was surprised at endurance of my old RST 381 EL - if this MOZO survive as long as old fork, I will be quite satisfied)
