    DH front hub for shiver

    Hey all,

    Last weekend I broke my JR. T while racing at Mount Snow during the nationals in practice none the less . Well I Just won a 2004 Marzocchi Shiver Factory Edition . Now I've got to switch out my front hub from a QR to 20mm and was wondering what hub would be best? I was just going to buy the Marzocchi hub but I figured I'd ask around first. Heres a pic of my new fork.

    Price is no big deal. I was just wanting the most durable hub I can get.

    Demn it, you won me with only $10. Wished I have had time to watch the auction since I was ready to go a little higher. Ohh well congrats on the fork.

    PS what would have been your top offer on that fork? I would have gone to 600 if I had been by the computer.

    You will notice a huge difference in damping performance going from a JRT to a shiver...
    What were you doing racing on a JRT anyway? lol....

    Beautiful fork too, go with a hadley hub.....

    Sorry man...well not really but I put in $600 as my top bid as well. I put my bid in with only 38 sec. left so I was pretty sure I was gonna win.

    It was a an old fork I had laying around and I just finished putting the bike together not to long ago and was holding out for a new fork anyway. I'll most likly be going with the hadley hub since thats what most of you are saying would be the best. And yes I'll post a pic as soon as I hook it up.
