    Lopes on Fox?

    From Brian's Twitter:
    Or did his frame just come from Ibis like that and he forgot to put his Marz shock on before snapping a pic?
    Keep the Country country.

    My guess:
    1. It came with the frame.
    2. Ibis is spec'ing the bike with Fox stuff, so he might be riding it like that to get them some feedback. Which I'm sure he's been doing for 2 quite a while already...

    Doubt he will ride it in public if at all, he is sponsored and paid by Zocchi.

    Yea, I bet that pic is removed quick as you can say "where's my sponsor check?!"

    There were some vague comments from Brian a few months back about big sponsorship changes for 2010... I don't recall the details, but it left me guessing that he was referring to suspension sponsorship. Merely speculation on my part, but I woudln't be a bit surprised to see him switch to Fox.

    Yeah, can't really say that it's been a boom in business for Marzocchi, but what do I know.

    I'm pretty sure that BL would not leave marzocchi because then he'd be giving up his connections with the bomber girls. As far as the difference in quality between fox and marz. goes. Well, you'd think that the bomber girls would have some sort of compensation plan set up for BL.
