    I am going to buy a Kona Stuff, the only thing is, I am not sure about the forks. They are Marz Bomber drop off comp forks and seem (when I checked the bike out) to be really good. I am 102kg (16st) and heard new springs may be needed to account for my weight. Is this woth it if the forks are not much good. Any advice is most welcome.

    :confused: :mad: /:)

    weel the suspension is good and would prolly be better if u did get new springs.

    u could sell it and get the dirt jumper 3's that are on the roast.

    Yes you will need new springs, stock springs are meant for skinny guys who weigh about 70kg

    at 100kg you will be riding on the bumpers most of the time and you might as well have a rigid fork
