Check it out.
I'm new to the downhill part of this sport and I need some new forks.
The ones I have now are single crown 100mm Manitou Xvert. They're hella' stiff and I feel all the stutter bumps on downhill courses.
I 've been looking at some Risse Trixxy forks. I've also got some ?'s. How do they work( good, bad, ugly)? How reliable are they( do they break easily)? What kinda' warranty are we looking at?

Thanks.

You can re-spring the forks you have to suit your needs. This will be far cheaper than getting new forks.

Also if you havn't kept your forks in good condition that could be half the problem. I think they recommend servicing suspension forks every thousand miles or so. I don't know for sure what they recommend for yours, but I have seen lot's of forks that have no movement left. The soft parts of the fork go first, and that's what absorbs the little stuff.
