Whats the story on the 50 mm fork setup?

Well. I had a 100mm DJ3 and i loved the ride, but i wanted to shave some weight, and try something new. And it just so happened there was a kid willing to trade and already lowered Pike for the Dirt Jumper. So i decided to try it out. And i love it. I mainly ride park these days and its perfect. I got used to the low BB height quickly. It made the bike much more stable in the park and allowed for a higher rise bar without affecting the ride height too much. Now i can do turndowns!

and for the record...Pikes suck. I love the way the bike rides with a low, light fork but the Pike flexes wayy to much

really? at 50mm, you find it flexy?


10/9/2009 7:47 PM

yeah. it drives me crazy. it flexes soo much worse than my 06 dirt jumper
