- What Forks? (Light Freeride)
moon on a stick i reckon
everyone I know who has tried light forks for some of the more hefty riding has ended up breaking them. freeride requires springs, big heavy ones and not too much fancy gubbins. totem coil probably about as light as you’ll get
66 RC2 ETA probably is the only one i can think of with coil+travel adjustPosted 9 years ago
I’m a couple of years out of date with what forks are available these days.Posted 9 years ago
I’m looking for a pair of light single crown forks that have about 7″ (170-180mm) of travel.
I also want them to have on-the-fly height reduction adjustability like Marz old ETA or the Fox Talas systems.
I currently have a pair of 07 Talas and although they are ok, I was wondering if there was anything better out there.
Looking to build that mythical ‘one bike does all’.
You can do 7ft drops on a rigid fork with the right tranny. Totems / 66s would be overkill unless you are hitting rough DH runs.
If what you want is a fork that will be not too OTT for long XC rides but stiff / strong enough for a trip to Chicksands or the like I’d stick with a Lyrik or 36. I’m living in the sickest, largest E-pen!s waving biking area in the world and only have a Pike this year.Posted 9 years ago
