    another p2 ?

    i have another p2 question for all u people out their. would the p2 geometry be ok for freeride and downhill. it lokks like the geometry is wayto low in the back so if i put a higher travel fork it will really put the backend low. and wat would be a good 130-150mm travel fork for freeride in the 300-500 price range thanks

    High front, short chain stays and tall front are ideal for dh and fr (north shore style &street anyways)...you want lots of room to whip the bike around, high front makes it easy for manuals and short chainstays are ideal for wheelie drops.

    Like Mael said, they are great for DH. I have seen people with 7 inch forks on them at the local DH races, and geez they are bloody fast. And have heaps of style jumping on them, way easier to move in the air.

    Marz: z-150 FR, Drop Off Triple

    IMO the z-150 is better. Its a SC but its better then the Triple.
