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

string or wire, not magic.

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