    Bye boxxer. Hello totem.


    Hey thx bud, i thought the same thing as you (about the pedals) until i took it for a snow ride this past Sunday. Surprisingly, the pedals are stickier than you would think (and they're cromo/alu vs plastic - in case that's what you were thinking).
    Never heard of a seat post exploding and ending up where the sun don't shine...ouch! :) it may have been a defect or operator error :D

    Here's my Diggle, still a few parts to upgrade (cranks/bash and wheels for sure), but the way I've been riding it.

    BTW, is that a Van 36 up front? I would kill for a grey colored Van fork like that. I'll I'm finding is black or OE-white.

    Yep, oil/spring. I bought it slightly used off MTBR at the beginning of last season. In fact I had it mailed to my "cabin site" in Moab so that I could install/use it there. It's a great fork. Having the Maxel in the back and that 20mm in the front is awesome!

    drastic.
    curious, how are folks liking their marzocchi SC forks? was looking at getting a RCV 180mm for a voltage as i can get them at a good deal. I'm not rich-blooded enough to afford a Fox Float..lol

    This is a 2005 66RC. Wouldn't trade it for any other fork. I say 2006 and earlier are the best but I have only one newer model 4X. It's a 2010 and the rebound is not strong enough for me. The cartridge was replaced and it feels the same. They said it is normal for that fork. It should be much slower rebound when tuned up all the way. Bottom line is it rides good. I hope no one is lying to me. Doubtful. The newer FR DH forks are probably fine. Check the reviews on MTBR.

    I'll try to get it weighed this week, but I believe something like 40 lbs.

    :thumbsup: ! Jedi that looks sick! frame and wheels and spokes look really nice together. blue fork (stickers / knobs), plus the hubs and spacers really match the other blue bits on the bike. begins to think that it is not true?
