    Well its 72.10029187305ft with the 03' DJ3 because it was 2lbs lighter. Adding the extra weight bumped it up to 82.10029187305ft

    He wrote "whats the biggest drop a dj3 can handle, SOME1 PLZ ANSWER ME!!!1" or something like that. I get a lil pissed off sometimes.

    Why do people ask questions like this? I don't mean this as criticism necessarily, but I don't understand why this seems like a valid question to anyone.
    BTW...good answers
    Just ride and find out your and your bike's capabilities!

    can you really go do a 82 foot drop on that little travel fork? are we talking the XC dj3, or the downhill dj3

    I doubt any fork could take 82 ft. If there is one...it is in fact just one...the guy dropping would be in the hospital, but the fork MIGHT live

    Not to tranny...and really over about 7 ft...most people don't do drop to flat. I would hate to attempt a 10footer to flat...bad for the bike and your body. When landing to tranny...ideally you want to land even

    The drop calculator is simple.

    Eye up a 1 ft drop, add 30 / 15 * 40 and then brag to all friends about how cool you are you can drop 82 ft
