    I was wonder if it was possible to upgrade to a Jr.T in the future. I have a Haro X3 and I was wondering if a double crown fork would work with the stock headset. Any comments welcome!

    Yes, but you really shouldn't worry about upgrading until you break something. You just got your bike, ride the piss out of it as it is. When something breaks,then upgrade! Your bike came with a Marz DJII right? That's a KILLER fork!!

    Yeah it came with the II's. I was planning on waiting but I was wondering what I should look for when this happens. Thanks

    The Jr. T's will work great, if you want/need the extra strength and extra travel. I don't do much dropping or jumping, so a triple crown in overkill and just too much weight for my style of riding and the trails I ride.

    I've seen riders using them, but they're overkill for my purposes.

    However, I don't know your ability or your trail conditions, so I can't properly comment.

    Yeah, i'm looking for a little more strength. I have bottomed out the DJ II's only once but come close a few times. So if/when I break them i'm deffinatly getting a stronger fork.

    Don't let that scare you. Pro DH racers set up their suspension so that it bottoms out two or three times per run on their race runs. If your fork is set up properly, this is for DH, then it should bottom out every now and then on one run.
