Tom, hundreds of people use these forks and think they're great. Loads of people use them for park and dj, yes they won't be strong enough for slopestyle but that doesn't matter. They are plenty strong enough for what DJ and park demands (if you aren't a hack) and as a bonus weigh loads less than argyles etc
thank you Smile

OK I'll bite.

They are stiffer than my old dj3s by a mile and a lot more confidence inspiring because they are much more plush on dirt so more grip etc

I have hacked up loads of spins. Still running sweet and I bet they will run sweet for ages.

Yes they do weigh very little. Probably due to a high level of engineering and design in the fork and using a cartridge damping system instead of oil bath as used on other forks

The only people who buy "cool looking" parts live on pinkbike

I think because you can get away with them and if you would recomend for somebody else to run them is a totaly different matter.

You can get away with running XC wheels on a Dj bike for a while but as soon as you case a jump or land a big jump heavily it'll bend and buckle.

The same thing will happen with an XC fork on a dirt jumper, it will hold up but on a big drop, or a crash or a heavy front wheel landing it will break or fatigue and build up to breaking.

I ran a 32 talas with no thru axel. The lowers were no match for the stress of footjams. But they were so light! I did discover one night in my garage that fox 32 uppers will fit into rock shox dart lowers hahahaha. But then those broke too. I'm running a dj3 fork now and i like it when its set up firm.

If you can afford a fox 32 you shoudl just get a pike dj or manitou circus instead, those are dj specific forks

This thread is so old they're probably all dead now from their forks snapping.
