    dolphin's failed.......but that was with a lot of riding under it. If you don't do a lot of front wheel crap, get a GT chromo fork. About same geo as a Koxx with a $5 price tag. Mine lasted me two months with a lot of front wheel abuse. If you are light on the front you should get a bout 6 months out of the beast.

    dolphin's zoo fork was ridden by him and andrew..it is amazing how long it lasted... right now, andrew, dolphin, elan..and probably others are running the zoo.... its flexy, but its LIGHT and seems pretty durable.

    I am having lots of luck with the Surly 1x1 disc fork
     
  6. I am recently starting to get into doing a lot more front wheel stuff so I need one that can stand a beating and last for a while any other suggestions besides zoo or is that my best bet?

    The Knifen Light is good if you don't mind a little added weight for extra durability. The regular Knifen weighs a ton but should never break. I am running the Knifen Light right now so that I can tap and hook stuff without worry(hopefully).

    I love the knifen fork.....I have some extremely sloppy gaps to front wheel and the knifen has been holding up really well.

    I just got myself a knifen light as well, it's nice and short, plenty stiff (great confidence booster for taps and hooks etc) and the gloss white is kind of growing on me...
