Hey Guys, I just want to know what your favourite street/dj fork is. It can be rigid or suspension. Just want to see what you guys like! For me personally, I know it's not the best fork but I love my buddys 2007 dirtjam comp. I love it soo much actually I'm saving for one right now! So ya, post your fav fork!

Manitou Gold Label


judging by the fact that you like the dirt jam comp im guessing you haven't ridden many. that fork is just a cheap OEM fork that comes on less expensive bikes, you cant even buy one after market there so cheap

2 of my friends have one, well one decided on going rigid but I rode their bikes a lot and I really liked the feel of them.

i meant you haven't ridden many different forks, not dirt jam comps. try riding a gold label, DJ 1, argyle and even a pike then go back the the comps, you'll cringe

ok ok. I'm also pretty young so money is an issue, thats another reason why I'm liking them.

argyles are awesome street forks... they're uber stiff and are completely idiot proof to both adjust and maintain...

i dont see why you want uber stiff forks

having a plush fork for dirt jumping licks balls... when you get into the curve of the jump at high speed, the fork begins to preload under the g-force... then when you get off the lip of the jump, it rebounds back to full extension and it throws off your initial jump trajectory... the less a fork compresses during the initial take-off, the bigger and better your jumps will be

hmm good point but wen you land i normally hurt my wrists with stiff forks so thats why i like um butter soft

try and find a compromise... not too stiff, not too soft... you'll have way more fun... another reason i love the argyle... the top and bottom compression settings are quite a contrast to one another...
