Hello,
I am in the midst of rebuilding a 98 Cannondale Super V 700 into an "Uber V" thanks to the information on this site. It's in the shop right now, but I've gotten the Jekyll swingarm, etc. I could not afford good, new forks but bought a set of rebuilt Marzocchi Jr. T's that are pristine.

I used my Super V for patrol as a cop. I bought it and now I am modifying it. I am not a downhill, freestyle, etc. rider. I ride streets, trails, park paths, etc. I'm a middle aged guy, 200 lbs. with backpack and water, etc. I am totally new to this, so my question is, is there any downside using those forks for the riding I do?

Thanks for any info.

The fork is overkill. It won't hurt anything though, except acceleration and steering response. Both these things will be slowed. On the other hand, if you chase a bad guy off a 6 foot drop you'll probably like the fork.
