white brothers

are the most under appreciated company I can think of. They make great forks which they stand behind. I had a DH-3 for 3 years of solid abuse and had no issues with it. I did ship the fork back for yearily tune-ups but never because the for was not working. If I was buying a dh fork this year it would be the groove 200. It is one sweet for which is built to last.

I've had my wb for 3 year's and love it. tried a 888 and never could find a happy medium with it and gave it back to my friend who I was going to buy it from.

how long was the turn around sending your fork into wb. I'm going to tear down my bike for a fresh paint job soon that would be the best time for me to send in my fork. thanks

White Brothers service is great.

a day or two turn around for every service I had. I also see their stuff just lasts longer. my stactions were as smooth as when I first bough them it might be because I had it serviced regualy but I have seen other forks wear out.

I'm glad to see a thread popping up about White Bros, there's so little spoken about them, I knew they make quality products, but like Intense5 said, --under appreciated --
I've recently picked up a FR 1.5 and am really impressed so far. Very no-frills 6" 5lb DC fork.

After reading so many different posts about this fork clunking, or repairing that fork took THIS long, I'm feeling lucky to have gotten a White Bros

so you like it?
Me? Why yes...Yes I do.

I can't testify for any major hits. I've just been able to get out in the earliest of spring, but so far I am pretty happy, it pedals & climbs great for no special dampening or platforms, hops, and takes small hits well.

I'll gladly look for more WB and also MRP in the future

i think 4 me the biggest bif is in the cornners the 200 just is so solid at holding the line i think that has to do with all the bushing overlap it has 8.5 in. at top out plus the air ass. gives you so much adj. and the piggy back is so nice on big hits

No, there's not a lot of people with 40's around my neck of the woods. Comparing my FR 1.5 to a 40 isn't really a fair comparison, like comparing a dj3 to a Totem.
The Fox 40 really is more of fork that requires a lot of mechanical attention. there's more than a few threads out there unhappy with the internals
for a novice daily rider, who just wants to ride; I'd go with the FR if given a choice. It's low maintenance and easy to tune.
