    Lack of funds and lack of options. I have had very good luck with surly stuff. trevor young recomended it to me at candy town then proceeded to front wheel hook and hang on a near vertical wire reel.

    Nice digs- I couldn't handle that crazy long stem but maybe you are tall or somethin. My friend bought that fork too, its hilarious and 300 pounds :)

    well its not a bad fork... just no tfantastic. it is cheap and it is around 2.5 pounds so not too bad. i had bad luck with reliability though, if it starts creaking, throw it away. it should be fine for a while but do keep an eye on it.

    yea kev if something creaks groans or makes any other wierd noise generally i trash it. i mean i dont have infinite funds but if i cant see the mechanical reason it made the noise (aka bearings in something being the problem) it leaves my bike quickly.

    Hey! I have those forks as well. :?

    I'll watch out for those creaks. I'm a newbie, so naturally I will be very unsmooth with them. Oh well.

    i just ride things until they break, get more life out of them that way :bigthumb:

    and if it can be fixed with string or wire, it remains on my bike even after breakage

    so if your fork breaks off, you ride your bike without it.

    "and if it can be fixed with string or wire, it remains on my bike even after breakage"

    string or wire, not magic.

    but i would have a bit of fun on it with no forks, who wouldnt.
