    2009 Fox 40 Integrated Stem.

    Do 40's with the integrated stem use boxxer stems or is it a 40 specific stem?

    Why would the 40 use a Boxxer stem?

    Because it's somewhat of an industry "standard".

    Any 4-bolt Boxxer pattern direct mount stem will work.

    Do you have to use a direct mount or can you use a standard threadless stem?

    You can use a regular stem if you wanted.

    wow, the strait line stem is a boxxer stem, It is just the industry standard for direct mount stems, you don't literallyy have to use a stem off of a boxxer, it is like how some other crank manufacturers still use shimano's isis.

    i haven't ride the 40, boxxer is like a freeride fork, is not too heavy, and i prefer 888 it has a not too long heavy and it is too good

    Marzocchi is in their own little world on this one... They use their own standard. There's a couple companys that make different direct mounts for 888's, but the Boxxer standard is easier to find.

    Fox 40 and Boxxer: 4 bolt crown mount.
    888: 2 bolts into crown with one clamp around steer tube.
