They retail for like $300 AUS over here (rip off IMO), i'd say thats a pretty good deal for a new one though!

Hell yes! PricePoint sell them for $99 on special. One for $50 brand new is a good buy.

Its not a very good fork though. I have one on my Trek 4500 and im dying to get rid of it. I think im going to get the Marzocchi MX Pro ETA. If you really want to go cheap with the fork i guess its a good buy but if i were you i would save up and get a nicer fork.

I have a Judy J1.
It's like a pogo stick with a wheel attached.

I need to change it soon.

I just put that fork on my 4600. I love it!
I had to change the stem to a 10deg to make up for the higher front end.
Now it climbs better than ever!
The JudyTT is really not that bad for what it is.
I would not pay more than $30 for it.

I tried it on this way old hardrock comp we have lying around and I thought it was kinda cool for like 5 minutes, then I realized that it had a hard time going past half its travel. Anyways it's a good deal price wise but it dosent change the fact that the fork is just bad.

I had one on my 2003 Dimondback topanga Comp, I thought it was cool for a while, but after a while I realized it was just a pogo stick, a month ago I bought a new bike with a manitou splice, I broke it and had to go back to the dimond back, I hated it. The fork has only one spring and the other side is empty. THis is just a bad fork, its a good deal, but still a bad fork. Spen $50 more and get something a bit better
