 Like most valentine's gifts... Rather expensive and very contrived.

They could have literally just said... Hot pink fork limited edition because hot pink is f*ckin rad. Why would someone order a hot pink for for valentines day... On valentines day... To get it more than a month later... As a valentines day purchase.

These marketing posts gettin awkward, bud. Take about 10% off er there...
  • 12 5
 Dang bro... it will be ok. Show me on the doll where Valentines Day hurt you.

 @JudyYellow: Valentine's Day is fine. But I went to the market today to grab things for dinner tonight and there were these small things of chocolate covered strawberries that looked really good... For $25. I'd have really liked to get them for the lady but I've been financially struggling since covid. I might pitch just buying strawberries and getting dipping chocolate to her, but I was ashamed to not be able to get her a nice v-day gift all wrapped and pretty.

Project on me all you want. Valentine's Day isn't the problem. But inflation and the crippling cost of living, particularly after Covid, has got me down.

If that's not okay with you then feel free to shit on me some more to improve the current state of the world. Your service is appreciated.

 I never understand the custom fork/limited edition craze like when fox released the pistachio, root beer, battleship etc. You can either wrap your current fork or when you need to do a 100 hour take it apart and powder coat it or paint it. I do a vinyl wrap on every fork I buy, it cost me $50 and I have enough for two forks.

 who makes the best 160mm fork these days?
  • 5 1
 definitely suntour
  • 12 0
 There was a dude in the comments above that said DVO makes the best fork because he saw a video of someone else ripping on one. So it must be DVO.
  • 7 1
 well considering people who race that dont have a suspension contract always buy FOX, id say its suntour for sure.
  • 2 1
 i ran Rockshox for years on different bikes, due to financial reasons...and i always had set up problems, i changed to FOX on my latest MTB and it is night and day, best suspension i've ever had, my idea of Fox was that people liked it just because of the name and the foxtail stickers, but boy was i wrong.

 When limited product looks like the cheapest option on the market. I'd appreciate some custom graphics etc, not just pinky dip.

 I´m willing to bet that you could find or make a pink wrap like this, then just put it on a normal helm or even another similar fork for 10% the price! I like the fork though, cool theme.
  • 12 0
 Appears to be listed at the same price as the stock HELM on their site, so not going to save anything going the DIY route on this one......

 @natefield: but you could do it to a cheap Suntour or rock shocks, and it could look legit. I´m not sure, it wouldn´t be very honest.
