As far as customer service Marzocchi, Manitou and Rockshox have always been great to deal with in the past, however with everything going down at Marz lately and Ronnie leaving i cant say it will ever be the same. Wouldn't bother with fox, first of all ... more »

Super easy! get it started with your finger nail and once you got a good grip it should peel off in one piece, any little bits that are left come off with rubbing alcohol.

Im with sspomer, mastic tape is the shit! Looks super clean, stays put, and it keeps everything nice and quiet.

Try setting the levers on your brakes closer to the bars, it makes a huge difference when it comes to arm pump. It does take some getting used to but it works. That said a more padded grip like a rogue might help too. And obviously your fork has a lot ... more »

looks like grease ports and lighter machined legs, another step in the right direction

its a real shame, they were on their way back to the top, im pretty sure they'll pick up the pieces and figure it out though, cant wait to see what they have in store for us!

Reply to Clipless OR Flat pedals for DH 5/12/2012 8:54 PM

Personal preference really, what ever feels more comfortable, for my self its clipped in, just cannot ride flats.

Reply to Neck brace or no neck brace? 3/16/2012 9:01 PM

Personally i wont ride without one. Whether they work or not is really up in the air i guess, i think they do, i know Gwin isnt too fond of them, but id be willing to bet your chances are better with it on then not. Ive gone otb off a drop to my face ... more »

Reply to RS Boxxer World Cup or FOX 40 RC2?? Help please 3/8/2012 9:21 PM

888 Evo ti, it out performs both by miles, requires little to no maintenance, has a 3 year warranty and is just a tick heavier than the Boxxer WC. Iv'e owned and ridden all 3 forks and i wouldn't bother with anything else, your either going to be servicing ... more »

Reply to that one trail 8/31/2011 12:48 PM

I can guarantee you the guys that put all the hard work in on that trail dont want you talking about/riding it without their permission, let alone posting directions online, have some respect, if u didnt build it, dont talk about it.

nah i like the hydro but given the chance i wouldve taken the v-10 its got all the travel it needs to obliterate anything in the rough but still pedals with the best of em, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Reply to Fox Fork Oil 6/8/2011 1:04 PM

I also would recommend slick honey, which sold under its true name Slickoleum is a fraction of the price, you can get it here, about the foam rings, seeing as they're not integral to the performance of the fork i would just remove them and put grease ... more »

Reply to Rookie Brake Question 6/5/2011 6:58 PM

like big bird said you shouldnt have gone through the pads, but there is a 2.5mm allen screw behind the lever blade you can use to move the levers out so they dont hit the bar, if you continue to have issues have them bled at the shop, if your still ... more »
