Default Re: poor handling at top speed

I bought 10ft of #41 chain, thanks civilized. So here is an update. I didn't know the fork had it because it was so cheap but it has a control for stiffening and softening the fork. It was on a very soft setting. I put it on the firmest setting and went for a ride. The problem was much less noticable. So it looks like the problem is the fork. I mostly plan on riding at slow speeds off road so I might leave it but I am not sure.

I wonder if anyone else has this problem with suspension forks?

I have a brand new rockshox dart 3 fork laying around with a lock out feature. With the flip of a switch it becomes rigid. I was saving for a non motorized bike but I might pull it off the shelf for this bike. For on road high speeds lock it out and have nice suspension for slow off roading.
