I have a 2010 P1 and i cant stand the stock shoch its way to soft and bottoms out due to my weight im 6'8 and 265 and lossing weight but need a good fork that can take abuse as i am not easy on things and ride hard

i believe u get what you pay for so i have about 700 to spend although i dont wanna spend that much if i dont have to i have been lookin at fox and rock shock

if u can please include a link if u have a good recommendation

Good DJ forks do not come with QR lowers...if you want a good fork for a P1, your going to need a 20mm axle front wheel.

Good Dirt Jump forks DO come with quick releases. Check out the Marzocchi line of DJ forks. This is what I had installed on my Kona Hoss and it is still going strong today.

Check the Marzocchi DJ 2. You'll be just fine.

DJ2=POS

I guess your definition of quality is different than mine. If you mean a fork that will survive a nuclear holocast then yes...the DJ2 is a quality fork. If you mean a fork that actually performs well...the damper in the DJ2 is a joke, ported with no adjustments...terrible.

Like I said, no quality DJ forks are available in QR:nono:

As it is, the OP has provided the information that was needed with the original post which is he owns a P1 All Mountain. I would not recommend sinking $700 into that bike, instead a Tora 318 Solo Air which has a FAR superior damper to the DJ2 (not to mention 2lbs lighter) and works very well for a Clyde would be a solid choice for that bike.

Just trying to find you a solution without high expendature. I've got nothing but good to say about my DJ fork. Is it the best on the market...absolutely not. Is it dependable and does it get the job done...absolutely.

You said you didn't want to have to get new wheels but seems like you might have to...OR just throw your bike into a landfill and let mtnbiker72 build you something worthy of his expertise. :thumbsup:
