    And let me tell you this. You NEED to know how to ride on before you can talk about one. So give it a rest.

      I think we all know how to ride bikes.

      You're the one that wants to ride the dirt bikes, not us........

      And what's so hard in riding dirt bikes?

        Whats so hard? Do you even have a clue?

        A dirt bike has a clutch, throttle, gear peg, a running 250 cc engine between your legs Plus all the terrain of the desert, which can be rocks, bit rocks, slippery rocks, oddly shaped rocks, (pops tires), sand, whoops (waving hard mounds), sharp turns, limited fuel. And on top of that, gear, which covers every part of your body, and about 95 F outside.

        And this is going oh, 20-80 miles per hour, respectivly.

        Gotta love it.

                yeah the first one is a manitou, but see the second pic i have a marzocchi now. regarding the boxxer its a downhill only fork and way too heavy to do anything else with it. its a good fork tho

                  If you can ride a bike and have ever driven anything with a clutch, its a piece of p***! Now, being GOOD on it is a whole different matter...

                      Cool, the Marzocchi makes it look more like a freeride bike.

                      Here's the bike I have for now:

                        Zak,

                        As a former bike racer (both motor and pedal) I know well how much joy new rims can bring. I understand your feelings about it, I just have one small request... When you post a photo in a forum thread how about downsizing it just a bit. The one in this thread of your new rims took over 10 minutes to download on dial-up.

                        As for the mountain bike vs dirt bike slant that this thread took - Geez people! They are completely different and each serves a different purpose. Each can be fun under proper use. Comparing them is like comparing hang gliders and airliners. Sure they both use the same sky, but no one would consider them interchangable.
