It's not bad at all but I feel it's starting to slowly limit my learning. What fork would I reccomend? Depends on your budget and riding style thing (XC, DH, etc. ).

Right now I'm drooling about either a Fox Vanilla 130 R or a Marzocchi Z1 FR III with a 20mm hub wheel.

The word is BEFORE. AOL'ese isn't something that we let run wild here. If you want to use it go join the BMX section or join MTBR.com's forums.

The pedals are pretty important, the stock ones are pretty crappy and you don't realize it until you try some good ones. BMX pedals are nice, I like the ones by Poverty.
