    55 will have TST. RC2 has proven itself many times over.

    Hey TK,
    I have the 06 Z1 Light as well and I can't figure out how exactly to tune the TAS (black knob under the left leg). Turning it either way doesn't seem to do anything.... It's supposed to lower/raise the static travel setting right?

    I'd take an RC2 fork over a TST one any day of the week. Too bad that means getting an orange one if you want a Z.1.

    Sounds like a match made in heaven, Wait a minute, any bike with a Z1 is a match made in heaven.
    Just my 2 cents.

    thats what its supposed to do, but i never really messed with that as i want to keep the full 150mm travel...

    as for TST, i know what you guys are talking about... i have a marathon xc that needs the tst cartridge to be bled.

    I just scored a NOS 06 z1 light on ebay.de last saturday, and here is another one going for sale right now (I guess this guy bought all the german left over z1 stock, because he is been selling 1 every week for some weeks now) This is the international version, without TAS, though..

    not that expensive when you live in Germany (because you would need to add about $80 shipping and about 20% VAT to a fork bought in the US, and the z1 RC2 locally is almost 600 EUR), so it was still a bargain

    I've fitted a Z1 Light ETA on my Reign and more than looking great, it's a very nice match. With this fork you'll have a really versatile bike: z1= freeride and with ETA you can lower your cockpit and go uphill.

    With no doubt, go for RC2 instead of TST. Nobody realy uses the TST knobs, and with RC2 you can easily fit compression and rebound ant time at your will.

    The white was the 2006 model, so there aren't too many of 'em around anymore. They only made orange ones for '07.

    I think a threadjacking is in order. How do you like the Big Betty? I'm struggling to find a front tire that I really like. Nevegals keep blowing out sidewalls, Rampages don't grip for s***, on and on. I'm thinking about either a Maxxis ADvantage or a BB next.

    so far so good.. it is heavy for what I am used to (900 grams) ..I am used to running 2.4 Nobby Nics (about 640 g).... I have only had couple chances to ride them on rocky stuff...sidewalls are real strong...and really grippy

    I'm digging the Rampage and I'm running them like Nevegals, too

    PS- I have black lowers on my Z1 Light
