Light is always preferable unless you're sacrificing strenght. Lighter weight means easier to handle/throw around/manuever and more efficient.kruz said:Heavy or light forks? Which is better for DH & Freeride? Is a lighter DH bike better then heavy bike? Why people always go lighter & lighter?
What is wrong with the fork you havekruz said:I've Fox 40RC for my RMX. I'm looking a new fork for my 9point5 which now with a DMN inverted fork (approx 5kg-HEAVY!!!). What fork should I get to replace? Boxxer World Cup, 888RC2X or White Brother DH2.0?
no difference, people who say such things are morons and really have no idea what there talking about.sreiman said:i have another question (sorry for jackin your thread for a minute) but is there a difference between a DC freeride and a DC downhill fork? everyone keeps saying, " o that fork might be bad for freeride. its meant for downhill" but i would think any dual crown fork could be used for either. is there a difference in feel or somthing?
fiddy_ryder said:i think riding style fits into bike weight too.. if your a balls out head on kinda rider, a heavier bike might suit you well.. heavy bikes are kinda pick your line, point and shoot. they track right over and through ****,, if youre a finesse rider, light bikes let you work the bike around and change lines easier.
