Nice new fork

Just got myself a new fork. currently in 4 in mode and plan to upgrade to 5 in. This thing is HEAVY...all steel. But it is nice with an internal rebound control and external air preload. Sweet fork

I flipflopped the pic. Nice eye.

Yeah, an extra mattress that sits against our wall...really gotta throw that thing out soon

I run mobsters for fronts on all my wheels...the rear is the specialized one (which I have gotten used to) and will be switch to the nevegal when it wears out

No...well sort of. The JrT's are to cumbersome on trails. This way I can have a 5in travel fork for xc with 5 in the rear...or 6.5 both for the mountain.

Funny thing, my new DirtJumper 2 just came in today aswell, and looks almost identical to that.

Cheers, fellow New Forker
