I Want A Jr T!!!!!

Please tell me one will fit on my bike. (Haro X3 '04). I just found out I wasn't able to install a 8" rotor in the rear and I'm dissappointed. The only other thing I was looking at for an upgrade was a Jr.T. Would one fit?

It should, but I would save up a little more for a Super T.

Wouldn't a Super T '******' the geometry of the bike. Note: the frame is big for me.


I'm looking for a Freeride fork, Although I'm trying DH I want more of a freeride fork.

The super T will not effect it that much, since you can get a Super T in 7".

Don't get the 2003 JrT/Super T. Although I think these are the best looking models so far, the lower crown is press fitted to the stanctions limiting your adjustment. The new models have a screw crown but I hate the black stanctions!

if you are going to stay with a standard axle, do what im doing, buy a 2005 Maniou Sherman Flick. adjustable from 100-150mm of travel and same compression and rebound adjustments as the 04. and for only $500, its priced great
