The Dart was a cheap solution ... replacement elastomeres for the Indy XC would have cost about the same :lol:

Fair enough, certainly better fork then Indy's anyway.

When budget allows some Z2s maybe? Can get them for around 50 notes. Right travel, smooth. Perfect.

Love these early Kona Full sussers.

Hm, let's wait and see 8) the rear shock rather worries me more, that Deluxe is not really good, but again - i got it cheap via eBay.
