So I've been looking into getting a new fork to replace my stock one. The ones that I've really looked at have been the wand v3 and the xlt-t. I know the wand is built for more clearance for fatter tires, but at the same time s&m is a solid company. Anyone had experience with these? Or any other suggestions?

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

S&m came out with the Wide mouth pitchforks. Best of both in your case I guess. But I heard the pitchforks aren't the best

Pitchforks are the best......I've been riding the original xlt forks since they first came out still going strong .....7 or 8 years old or so back when I had my mutiny sinister frame

Both are good. I hear the dropouts soemtimes crack on the Pitchforks though. Either way you're good.

I seek progression, not perfection.

I also saw a pic on Instagram of a set of Wands snapping at the bottom of the steerer tube... not good.

Only reason I'm getting the Widemouth Pitchforks is because I want the most "American" bike I can get and I'm not a hard rider, plus I don't use pegs.

R32s are pretty much the best forks you can buy.
