Need new forks...opinions? post #1
Everything on my bike has been upgraded except the forks. I am running some fairly old Ody 41 thermal dirt forks that weigh about 51 oz. and I'd like to take advantage of the weight savings new design forks would give me. So I've been checking some out and here's what I've narrowed it down to:

S&M Pitchfork XLT (34.8 oz.)
Sunday Morning 2 (33 oz.)
Sunday Night 2 (35 oz.)
Ody Classic dirt (34.4 oz.)

I also run a 3/8" axle up front, weigh about 185 lbs. and I'm not really THAT hard on my parts. I jump the occasional set of stairs so I want something that won't bend after a couple hard landings. Let me know what you think and why, so I can decide what to order.

first off let me say welcome back. I pretty sure any one of those forks would hold up fine. I would either go with the ody, or s&m, but mainly because im not a fan of sundays graphics. these are all good forks

I'm leaning toward the Sunday Morning 2's at this point. I like the way the fork is clearanced for grinds.
