I am considering buying an 2008 Kona Hoss for a really good price. I weight 401 pounds and am worried about the Marzocchi Dirt Jumper II 100mm forks that come with it. Am I able to buy extra stiff springs or should I seel the forks and buy forks with lock out?
That fork should be adequate as long as you're not planing on big drops or anything like that. I believe the fork has air assist and you just need to set it accordingly. I've ridden my Dirt Jumper 3 for about 3 years now on my Hoss and I haven't had the slightest problem out of it and I have fluctuated between 350 - 400 on my fork.
