Ha! I can't keep my washing machine drain from clogging. Maybe I can throw those fuckers down there.clem said:

If that's the case, I think I would've welded up the Plunger in a fixed position and ran that instead. That way it would ride like a hardtail, but look like a plunger.irk miller said:As the research goes, there is only one suspension worse then a hardtail and that's a plunger.
Sorry to disappoint. It was a hard decision that I went back and forth on for months. Thanks for making it easier. It's not a cookie cutter kit to turn it into a hard tail and it's not cookie cutter axle plates. That's all done by me in my own design. I figured I'd lose some fans of this build with the decision, but I gained a few inches in length to sit (which it needed) and I won't wobble and die at high speeds (which is common with plungers). Not sure how welding up the plunger to make it into a fake plunger is better than turning it into a hardtail. I'm not into faking things. I might not always do it right, but I do it honestly. Considering I've just been told that it's a waste of these USD forks on a hardtail, I'm definitely building a roster of vocal critics. I'm sure this build will attract way more vocal critics than I have now.Redbird said:If that's the case, I think I would've welded up the Plunger in a fixed position and ran that instead.

Sadly (for me), the frame has lost it's "hook", and now looks like a cookie cutter hardtail.
