Alright guys, here's the deal I've been riding XC for a while, and then moved up to FR, and lately got bit by the DJumping bug! I have never DJ'ed before but am gonna jump both feet in. I'm 29, 5' 10" and weigh 200lbs. I am building up a 08' Giant STP Lenosky frame and have a choice of 3 forks to choose from that I have sitting in my garage. I have a 07 Fox 36 Van (I can have it lowered to ?), a 07 Rock Shox 454 dual air Pike, and a 06 Fox float RL. The bike will be used for XC/AM and most of the time teaching me how to dirt jump. I would say that I'm a fairly smooth rider and have some really good friends that have been dirt jumping for years, that are willing to take me out. I know I should probably be riding a steel frame, but I am really dead set on Giant, they have been areal good co. to me before and one of my best friends is a Giant dealer.:thumbsup: My question to you guys is which fork would be the best fit for the Large Stp for a guy just learning? I know I should'nt even throw the Float out there, but @#$% it! it does'nt hurt to ask right.
