    hi i'm wondering if ths fork is ok, its only 50 so if it has low durability thats ok but will it bend doing small medium stuff?? it would be on a norco tt. would a surly 1by1 be a much better fork? thanks for your help. peter

    The Kona fork is probably fine. It's a simple design, nothing too fancy or out of the ordinary. The 1X1 fork is also just a run of the mill steel fork, both will suit you for a while, and by then you'll have enough experience to pick out a new one based on your prefferences. The one thing to think about is the axle to crown race length of both, the shorter of the two will give you a steeper head angle, and more "Trialsy" feel, and the longer will raise the front end a bit, slacken the head angle, and makes moves like Manuals and regular BMX style bunnyhops a bit easier, it's your style of riding that should dictate which one you pick between the two you've mentioned
