    What do ya'll think? I have been thinking that 7inches is just too much and I like the idea of trying out the Z150.

    The 66, is way taller than the super-t because of the oversized crown. Wait till next year, the 66 will be much shorter. Get the rc, its much better thean the vf, which spikes.

    THe z150s are still pretty nice though.

    i would say the z1 150mm would be a great fork, and honestly it wouldn't be that bad, though if your a big guy or plan on hitting huge stuff, or just aren't a smooth rider than you might not want to get it. i personally would love to have one on a 6" or so travel bike it would feel soo nice!!

    I traded my Junior T for a Z150 FR, one of the best ideas I've ever had. Great fork I say. Do it if you can. :thumb:

    In your case its a big upgrade in terms of performance. Since he's trading a super T, I think it would be more of a concern what kind of riding he plans on using the fork for. If you are going to be hucking and dhing a lot more, I would stick with the super t....but for trail riding it seems like the z150 would be a good choice.

    easy killer, I sent it out to you today and all is well. I appreciate your willing ness to trade. and Thanks.

    So yes I went for the trade and hopefully it will work for me. I am a big dude compared to most at 225lbs and 6'2". But I am looking for a good trail fork for a mixed bag of riding. No super hucking or absolutely GNARLY DHing, but something for all conditions.

    And yes when the cash is flowing a bit more I would love to try a 66 or a Travis...

    cool, looks like we won't have to do much adjusting on the forks 'cause i'm 240lbs and have the z150 setup for that :thumb:
