    Hey guys, im in need of abit of help as to where i can get me some new front forks for mt pitty.

    Atm its got a set of 730mm gpxs on it.
    So ive noticed that pitster pros lxrs are the same frame as mine and there running a 367mm rear shock (mine is 370mm) and 770mm front forks (mine are 730mm).

    The bike as allways felt abit wrong and i had to back the preload off completely to compensate for the short front shocks which then made my rear way to soft. now im seeing the same bikes coming out with the longer forks so im wondering where i can get a set of these forks.

    That link took me to a fasion site haha. Nah man they dont sell any 770mm forks. Like fast ace, vs1, volt.

    Would it be possible to chuck son3 tripple clamps off a 250cc china bike and have the longer forks off that. Then get a 17inch rim with 20mm axel.
    Not sure if the tripples would go on the pit bike head steam.
