    Beeing maby a bit to brave for my own good, i slipped of a plank and rammed a mountain dead on.
    This incident left me unharmed, but with a very bent fork on my bicycle.
    This is a problem for me because the balance of the bike is off and the breaks are off center.

    I was hoping you guys could give me some advice about what i should look for in a fork for a beginner riding a Woodman T-pro.

    Do not get an echo pure fork, its way to long for this bike, it screws up the geo.

    The T-Pro works best with a 400mm fork or something very close. Get either the Zoo fork or the Echo Urban fork. They are strong, light and cheap.

    Noted.

    Do the echo-forks have any paint or anodizing on them by the way?

    I'll need to paint the fork black so it matches the frame.

    I'm not sure what fork this is. I bought the bike used and there are no markings on it.

    I'm not making my mind up yet rob, but thanks for your input.

    I think i'm gonna try to straighten this fork so i have something to ride until the new one arrives. It is steel after all, so it shouldn't be impossible.

    You can find GT cromo forks for ~5 dollars at your local shop, usually only vee mounts but they are cheapos and black sometimes...i ran a zoo fork on my woodman, felt great.

    i figured a 400mm fork would feel really bad on the woodman what with it's low BB... but i have been wrong most of the time, so it makes sense.

    Ya thats perect I have the same.

    I was refering to the 420mm length as being to long for the slack head tube.
