I'd put some singlecrown forks on if it was me. Same travel, just single crown.

For me that bike sums up a nice hardcore hardtail.... I like it.

I had one of these a while ago...was my first hardtail in a while. Unfortunately it was one of the early versions without disc brakes but it did ride pretty well.

When I was getting back into bikes, I was looking at these on I think a Canadian site, Unreal Bikes? Anyway there was a few Jack Flash like this they loved them, they build into anything, even trials. Great

yer they have been well known as good "all round" frames, i paid next to nothing to build this (approx £250) total need to replace the bottom bracket as the bearings are shot.. and im going to respray the forks next week hopefully. not sure if i want to replace with single crown, i know these forks are old, but damn it there good still...
