    Looking for a double crown fork

    I'm looking for a double crown fork. I might change my DJ II to a double crown if I can find a good quality and good price on one.

    Care to elaborate a bit.

    What type of riding do you do?
    Whats your spending limit?
    How much travel are you looking for?

    And so on....

    I have a perfectly good Stratos S8 for sale. If that is to much fork for ya then I would say look for a used or older model JrT.

    Keep in mind if your bike is not ment to be used with a dc fork it will void warranty and put to much stress on the frame.

    Freeride/Extreme freeride. I've done some 7-8 ft drops.

    I am gonna recommend the Marzocchi Drop-Off Triple or as DBD said, an older Jr.T

    Those should be in your price range. Although i think both should be aroudn 6inches, they would be good enough.

    THe internals in these forks arn't that good but if you need something to take the big hits these are the forks. Ive heard that the Drop Off Triple are one hit wonders meaning that they can take a pounding but only one hit at a time. As for the Jr.t, they tend to spike at high speeds.

    Are you planning to buy used or new?
