Like, whoever said, It depends on what you do. Racing, Big steep jumps, ... etc.

First off, I DONT recomend fast50 forks what so ever. They have a little hole on top that is supposed to release preasure. But it actually sucks in air and dirt, and you blow seals like crazy. They're also VERY stiff.

Bombshells, I noticed at Elsinore race, that the riders with stock forks vs bombshells, that bombshells were just soaking up the lip of the jump causing you to stay lower. They were also on like 124 superheads and hitting the jump 3rd pinned, so... :roll: I have bombshells, and I can still jump BMX style jumps the same as stock forks. On BMX jumps you just roll up the jump and let your weight carry you. But bombshells are mainly a RACING fork.

+1 fork legs with springs, cheap solution, and works fine if your riding around the house, doing some jumps and stuff like that. I just dont like the springs because theyre a "pogo stick on wheels"

BBR SP-5, seem to be nice fork. I havnt seen any on the track, or in person yet. So I dont really have a comment. They seem like a nice setup though.
