hmm what do you think?

Hey, i recently just sold my z150fr finnally and got $650 to spend and i am thinking of these used forks:

Sherman slider 03 (really want)
03 Boxxer Race
03 Super T (really want)
03 boxxer Team

Which one do you think i should get it is going on a 2004 norco six and if you got any other forks reccomend them! and i am lso looking for a vancouver bike shop that has good deals on these types of forks i was kinda hoping to buy new cause then i will have warranty

Later.

I'd suggest gettin a single crown Z150. Oh wait, that's what you just sold. ha, ha!

Why not go all the way and get an 888?

Nah, too expensive, stick with the Super T.

The fork I would recommend and I have on order is the new FOX 36. Unfortunatly they wont be out until fall and you need one now. Go with the SuperT, proven, strong and reliable.

Anyone else see the SC Shivers at Supergo for $250.00?

I know you don't like them that much DBD, but heck for $250 I'm considering them.

Haven't they been out of stock for like 9 months. I know I have heard complaints about that ad because they haven't had them in a while

And for 250$ I would probably buy them and try them, if I don't like them would sell them

Hey Kona, there is a supa-nice launch rock in the back of Sundance school Oak bay.
You know? Though I saw you there with your gal 2? month back.
You were doing a bike fiddle with, I was riding past, out of time.

Anyway, the rock is very nice, glacier, 2? foot platform on a incline, you can totally force hight off it, launch pad angles perrrrfect.

Email maybe and we'll go out fer a ride, see how many jumps till the Ritchey funks out. I live in proximity to O.Bay, and the school.

No idea 'bout the shok, I'm ol'school, I jump non-sus bikes. ( My 'boys' get it once in a while, gotta lower my seat. HA!)

A cool summer to ya, Jef. Victoria,B.c.

Well Mael, I went ahead and bought them, along with a bunch of other stuff I didn't really need.

I bought some Roach knee/shin guards (avail in XL), so I've got a set of 661's if anyone wants a set, some new gloves and a new jersey. All for $350.00

Sweet...always good to spoil yourself. You will have to review how the fork is for big guys. I would be curious myself

Err...
Kona, why don't you want to keep your forks and stuff. It seems cash keeps flowing in to you, so why not save it up? Sersiously, you have a roast, a norco six, about less than a year later and are swapping forks in and out, parts coming in and out, and are reporting these updates more than anyone else, hence me assuming (I know I know its not that great to assume) that you upgrade a bit too much. Why not just keep your bike the way it is because Im sure, your talents don't exceed your bikes' limits. Look at konarider24, riding a STUFF, and I bet that he's more advanced than you are, I would think.

Keep your bike as it is and stay koo'.

I say the super T as my vote. You can get it for $560 on pricepoint! http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/133...uper-T-Pro.htm
