    like. holy shit. i thought it was over 1kg+ since it's cromoly.

    is it really that light and is it durable? If it it then i'm gonna get them :D since it's like half the price of an echo urban :D

    Ive got one, they are fairly light but not that tough. efter like 6 monts of riding without much fronhopping mines has started to give up. strange noices comes from the steertube but otherwise thay are quite got. PS they are qiute long also, wich results in a fairly high front end :down:

    Haha.. I knew my fork was beefy.. 1,3 kg. I can't understand how I'll ever be able to break it.(Kona Jump fork)

    If the Kona Project 2 are those perfectly straight ones,then I wouldn`t recommend them ,I`ve ridden a bike equiped with them,they were very flexy .. and some other people told me they`d broken a couple of them ..

    project twos are pure xc forks. yes, they are light, but really flexy and not very strong. if you are doing front wheel intensive stuff, you're looking for trouble with them. then there's also the visual aspect, the forks are really small diameter and look awful with aluminum frames. the lightest durable and good trials forks are fatty r, brisa pro (steel steerer) and maybe few other ones.

    Their alirght for a beginner, but if you get better, I'd go for something a little stronger.

    Haha. They're stiff as fuck and made of 1,3 kgs of steel. How the fuck do you break them? You must be confusing it with some other fork.

    mmm... i'm still a beginner, and i weigh about 50+ kgs.

    i could get the kona p2 now at about $70 where i live, or wait till end of the month for an echo urban fork for $180. Should i get the kona fork now or wait?

    there are two versions of them. the old light xc version and the newer jump fork, which is heavy duty but weights too much.

    if it's waiting a few weeks, are you nuts? obviously wait the extra 2 weeks and get a waaaay better fork :bigthumb: dont settle for less, just to get it sooner :slap:
