I am tired of buying expensive forks just to find out 2-3 years later, I cant get parts (Dorado) anyway I hear white bros. is very good about having service parts for a while but was wondering how they stack up against the rest?

Thanks

You've obviously never owned a WB dh fork :D

I went from a WB dh3 to a 888 and other than the lateral stiffness, the WBs are better built forks. Literally the only reason I got the 888 is that it's a stiffer steering fork in a bunch of chop.

I could leave that thing without an oil change for a year as opposed to the stinky mess my 888 makes out of oil in 6 rides. Plus there's no goofy little c-clip to lose to set preload. (I think the 06 888s did away with this though.)

WB has a new fork out called the "groove" which is just as stiff as my 888. If my zoke dies, I'll probably be getting one. The manufacturing is quite a step above.

That said, both are really good choices. My top two.

WB forks are great.

I love my DH 2.00 it is super stiff and really tuneable. They are not cheap 1300 but they are the best feeing fork I have tried. I am so glad I didn't buy a manipoo or a Boxxer. No way they would have made it through two dh seasons
