My god that is a lot of seat post sticking out. I think that is the most I ever seen.
nice pics. No more fork boot?
Yeah, I finally lost those dirt traps when I switched over to the Enduro wipers. Much better internals now and easier to keep clean.

Is that a Manitou X-Vert Air fork on your Hollowpoint? And if so, have you had any issues with air leaking from it? I picked one up recently really inexpensively and it is a great fork when holding air, but it tends to leak a little. I'd like to try and preserve it if I can, but I'm not sure an overhaul would make sense.
It's an '01 XVert Air and it's been great.
Manitou had some issues early on with an ill-fitting air chamber seal. You can open the top cap and look inside and determine, by the seal color, if you needed a replacement. Unfortunately, all the details are buried in the unsearchable archives. Manitou is pretty low on spare parts for these forks, but it wouldn't hurt to call them.
They also recommend a few cc's of oil in the air chamber to assist in sealing the action, if you haven't tried that already.
I love the fork, enough that I sold off the Fox fork that came with the bike.
I'll have a closer look at the fork - I think it's worth trying to preserve. It's a solid fork.
