I don't exactly know how we got to OG Super T's and Mr. T's, but if this isn't the place to brag that I own a polished OG Super T just like the one above, then where? :D

Mine came from a Sintesi Bazooka (I have no clue what happened to it) and it initially had some team-green decals. The disc caliper mount was made from the lowest grade aluminium, was very brittle and broke easily. I had stainless steel replacements made while I rode that fork. I also have a Mr. T, but it's less sexay than the Super T, duh!

I got one of the first Super T's in the USA thanks for being friends with Joe B and couple others guys whose names I cant remember now at Marz, most of them came over from Diamondback, so I had a Diamondback X6 with long travel link and super T, so sick! I remember Bryson showing all the prototype colors and finishes they were talking about and pointing to the brushed one and "yeah , that's sick!" Cool story bro! wish we had iphones back then so i had a pic of it



I actually came over not too long after Joe... He was my manager at Diamondback in the warranty department.. When Marzocchi needed someone to run the warehouse, he threw my name into the mix and that was the start of a long stay for me..

You'll get the same results as pillete

Maybe I should make a video of my 'lazy man's fork service.' Takes under two minutes (5 min for the extended version) and keeps the fork feeling mint in between standard service intervals.

I've picked up a few suspension and brake setup trick over the years hanging out with different EWS mechanics if there's any interest. Paging Spomer?

Would love to hear about that!

That Jackson shock better be a good one, as it does not get any design awards..

On another note: what do people think is going to happen with all launches usually being targeted for Sea Otter, now that it is postponed? Also, will the same brands have the same appearance as usual when all launches are done already?

Hope I’m not setting anyone up for disappointment. It’s nothing special, just something you might not have thought of to get close to a freshly serviced feel after a few hard rides. Definitely not a replacement for the real thing.

Spomer has the video, I’m sure it’ll be up sooner or later

I've noticed a few quick shots on social media the past few weeks of what looked to be a new Maxxis spike tire, but couldn't tell for sure. Here's a better view.Photo

Yeah I think. It's seems to me that is 29", shock without piggyback and maybe a Pike? So, I think it's a trail bike

looks almost like a re-branded specialized Hillbilly. Similar offset center knobs and a very round casing.

Dude what are you running a 34 on that you think you should jump to a 38? Just get a 36.

This was my thought. I am very curious what lengths the 38 will be produced in. My guess is maybe as low as 160 up to maybe 190. However, It is entirely possible it could be like a 160 -180mm. Should be interesting to see.

@Philip: The arch is not getting slimmed down in production versions--Those are the production versions. The lower leg molds cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in tooling. It's a final product now, just waiting for launch.

It would make a lot of sense for Fox to go 38mm stanchions for their enduro fork and DH Fork. only difference being the dual crown on the DH fork. The lowers could be the same and the pistons/parts all the same. Would reduce manufacturing costs and skus. HOWEVER, it looks like the new fox '38' may be a 36mm stanchions. And the new DH fork could also be a 36 stanchions in that photo, with dual crowns. While the lowers look similar, they appear to be screw in axles on the enduro fork and pinch of the DH fork. And lower part of crown looks beefier on the DH model. So maybe they're just using the same stanchions and internal parts.

I know this is what MRP does with the Ribbon/Bartlett, and I'm fairly sure the same is true of the Lyrik/Boxxer.

Edit: Identical lowers/internals, that is.
