    just spend your money on a used 05 or 06 888, it'll be about the same price

    edit: for those who think you can't find one for cheap, i got one in my shop as a trade...all the guy wanted was new handlebars, a stem, and some grips. it sat on the wall for nearly a year before i ended up selling it to someone for 200. he put it on an old giant dh comp, which i thought would feel good, but it still felt terrible. i can't figure out what bike would feel balanced with that fork

    I've been riding my Monster and saving my Super Monster for a special build. Maybe last one NIB in existance. Sick fork, 300mm travel!

    Good luck finding one cheap.

    Hope you are riding a Banshee or a Karpiel, cause if your not, you might as well kiss you headtube goodbye.

    Just cause your bike has 9" in the rear doesn't mean the front has to have 12", get a 200mm fork like the rest of the world.

    my friend has a 2009 Norco A-line Park Edition with a 9 inch fork that came stock on the bike, I think it was an 888 RCV. Super plush and it was adjustable down to 8 inches too

    see if you can get yourself one of those

    I'm pretty sure that nobody other than Avy and other small boutique suspension shops are making DH forks with more than 8" of travel in 2009 or 2010. Marzocchi definitely isn't. Either your friend is mistaken, or you are.

    better yet, call yer lbs. its doubtful that marz will sell direct to the consumer even on a nos part. why ya want this fork is beyond me but thats how i suggest you go forth if ya decide nuthin else will do. as mentioned above, i hope ya have a massively strong frame or a hella good dental plan.

    QBP still has them. The distributors still can't get rid of all of them because they are garbage.

    Did you just make this up? I just checked out QBPs dealer site and there's no mention of the Super Monster on either the current products or closeouts.

    10" Monster

    i remember a guy had one on an Azonic Gravity like 5 years ago.
    He said it was adjustable down from 12 - 10."
    This matched the Gravity's 10" of rear travel.

    This thing is art in the truest sense. A new one would look cool hanging on my wall...

    I saw them on there about 4 or 5 weeks ago. I suppose it's possible they could be gone by now.

    No, because that has nothing to do with the purpose of shims. Stop trying so hard.

    In all seriousness though... rebuild your manitou and practice riding more. 1" or 5" of isn't going to make the mountain any easier. If you absolutely need a new fork, stick with something in the 8" range you could actually get or get parts for.

    Pfft, lower it? How can he make it longer travel? 12" just isn't cutting it when you're extreme brah. I run a 12" fork on my XC bike.

    I'm a 210lb Expert/semi pro rider and I think my 8" boxxer has more than enough travel. What could you possibly be doing to require more travel?

    If you really need more bottom out protection buy a 2005-2007 888 and get the AVY hydro anti bottom out kit.

    This is what it says on the site:

    "203-228 mm / 8–9" adjustable travel 888 RCV fork with clamp on stem"

    This means the FRAME has "8-9" of adjustable travel", and the bike comes with a 888 RCV.

    Again, nobody is making DH forks with more than 8" of travel these days unless you're looking at one of these:



    Only $3700

    " 12", 1 foot, .31 meters travel standard"
    you know you've gone too far when your fork travel is measured in meters.

    I still don't get the hate over ppl wanting something that isn't the "standard" or the latest hype amongst mtn bikers or DH'ers or whatever.
    Super Monsters are awesome, they're amazingly plush and completely extravagant. That was the idea behind them.
    If i could get my hands on one i def. would, mostly just to piss everyone else off. =D

    Good luck finding one and keep us posted with pics when you do!
