My wishes:

I want some top three finishes. Anyone know where I can order those from?

I also want to have fun at the mtbr gathering in WV and do a lot of riding with new and old friends.

My wishes
to get a frame like my 2003 Jamis Dakar , only a half a size larger . My 19" frame feels a bit short for my legs , but the 21" is too long for my torso and a bit too tall . Maybe a Custom Titus Racer X-100 or Moto-lite .

A place to store my bike while I'm at college (dorm rooms are small...) so I can get some good quality trail and urban riding in.

I wish not to get hurt above all, and for products, I really want a Stinky. I tried my friends stinky and after that I couldent believe im still riding a hardrock. As soon as I rode his bike, it gave me the confidence of dual suspension and long travel to do anything. The only set back is that its 2000$ yikes.

If you are going to run that tall of a fork, you want all the support you can get.

Great answer!

Can you name a fork that has three crowns? Maybe post a picture?

Thanks.

Sorry to get off topic

Technically, they only have 2 crowns: an upper and a lower.
