Ok, first what do u mean by "Big hit slacker style bike". I like the feeling of a slacker head angle for the stuff im doing. And the 66s would make my head angle a little bit more stepper, correct?Raptordude said:Its really gonna depend on your frame. When people say the 66 is "North Shore" I really hope they either mean the 150mm version or the 170mm on a VERY proper frame. (THis is 05's we are talking about...right?)
The 170mm 66 will only put your bike into a sort of "Big hit" slacker style bike. I went against the 7 inch 66 cause it was gonna screw up my geometry too much.
For Northshore, I honestly suggest the 170mm 888RC with the option of Low-Rider crowns at your disposal. Not only can you adjust your head angle, but you can adjust it even further with the new crowns. The 66 will screw up your head angle.
the 66 is a really good fork....for North shore riding I would feel more "secure" on dual crown.....my question would be A Super T or an 888.......if you buy an 05 888 then you would need low rider crowns or buy the 06 888 with low rider crowns already and other improvements..........a Super T would probably be your best fork....that is what i would choose on my Big Hit....Hopefully you have the big hit link in the backspecialized_darby said:Im 5'8" and i'm like lets say 158 lbs
The 05 66 crowns will make your bike a lot slacker due to the higher crowns. Zokes has lowered it 40mm in 06 I believe. I personally like it slackened out, for the shore it's nice for because of the stepdowns and various terrain.specialized_darby said:Ok, first what do u mean by "Big hit slacker style bike".
