    Sorry for the somewhat irrelevant title, but I'm wondering if a RockShox tora fork can be used for dirt jumping. I have one off my old XC bike and wasn't sure if it would be any good for dj/street stuff.

    How much do you weigh and how smooth are you? Haha I have a buddy who rides urban with one but he is a little guy and always breaks things. I'm sure it would hold up for a little while, but it won't be real stiff and I wouldn't expect it to last forever.

    I think it'd be a bad idea for street. But thats based on how I ride street-destructively (for myself and bike).
