    They make Noleen forks look like a great fork.

    Zooms are pretty low end forks..... Did u buy them or did they come stock on your Saracen?

    The Zooms are pretty popular with Saracen and Shogun bikes over here in the UK, they look really big and beefy but arent that good for anything extreme, their really heavy too...

    Yeah they came with the bike and as you say they do look beefy, though that said I've had no problems with them as yet and they seem to be able to handle all I'm throwing at them.

    Well thats ok then, because it'll take a year before I can afford a new set and there are other things I want to buy for it first.

    uve seen these forks, my friend used to have them on his SUPER HUFFY , not to offend huffy riders, but this thing was 4 years old and weighed as much as i do soaking wet.. anyways the forks were good for the price, and never failed, they were just really, loose and bottomed out alot.
    but for the price, not bad

    Holy thread resurrection batman!

    mx 599 - Noleen made forks that came on most of the K2 bikes around the year 2000 or so. They make a great cross country fork 50% of the time. The reason I say this is that people either get a great fork from them or a complete lemon. A lot of weight weenies are still searching for these forks.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    wow! i swore i'd never get bitten by the "thread resurrection" snake. i need to pay attention. i just honed in on Noleen because they are from motocross. i get tunnel vision when it comes to motocross related things.

    edit: to top it off, i was tripped up by the purple Cuddlebum monster himself

    You're an "Xtreme Downhill Biker", I'm sure if your fork can take the abuse you must put it through doing the huge drops, gaps and rock gardens then it should be able to handle a few jumps.

    My old bike had Zoom forks. They were absolutely horrible to ride, and heavy as.

    I dunno, but it made the bike feel like all its weight was right up the front.
