    i am currently building an ih yakuza frame as a long travel trail bike. i have ordered a dhx5 coil for the rear giving me 7" of travel. i'm trying to decide now on a fork. i have been leaning towards the 66 for a little while now. since the swap from the 888 lowers, the 66 is looking nicer. i'm still looking around for a good fork for my application. i live in cali, where the freeriding is almost nonexistant. i climb occasionally and do quite a bit of single track. i've also been looking at the sherman breakout and fox 36. is there any other fork i should look at? i'm looking for 6-7" of travel.

    :stupid: Bad spelling aside, he's right. The fox 36 is worth the extra buck.
