I was thinking, the two weeknesses of the z150 are flex and weight. If one stanchon was to be replaced with alluminum and one spring replaced with an air spring how much stiffer and lighter would the fork become. Would doing this cause problems and would the one steel stanchon mantain impact stangth. I was just thinking, wonderd what you're oppions were.

might be a good idea.. but do you think they havent thought of that themselfs..? I say steel stantions lighten it where it isint needed like steel steer... I dont ride steel stears and mine never ever had a prob.. BUt then again its a 6" SC

That's just my idea of a dream sc fork. I'd also like to be able to ajust the travle like a manatu or a rockshok. If they have thought of it I wish they would put it in production.

I say they should just go back to the old fork design and wow they would have a winner if I didnt have a slider id buy that old fork ANYTIME with that replaceable arch

aluminum stantion?.. if they both cant take loads evenly.. then there could be a greater risk...

Get the Z150SL. It's light, air, aluminum, and has ECC.

I got burned with the removable brake mount... bolts just a millimeter or two too long, I wasnt even riding with them in, still I have a 'parts fork'...

The Z150 SL doesnt seem like too bad of a fork. I'd like one, just to satisfy curiosity. Whether I'd take one over a slider plus is a different issue.

They are super stiff once you throw on an anvy arch.

I have two of em, great forks. The crowns do crack, but no easier then the 03's.
