    Not the coolest or fanciest build, but gets the job done.

    Great suspension wide bars and stiff crankset.

    Ride reviews soon!

    Do u think it goes well with the CCDB? I have no idea what fork i should get for my Podium... I dont have much money to spend on it... Do you think the Boxxer RC will preform well on that beast?

    Well based on what i have ridden, 1. Fork has to be stiffer with CCDB in back. 2. Boxxer has to be lubed, greased and adjusted as soon as you get the fork!

    What is the benefit of the slick honey (where) and different weights?

    Slick honey for the seals

    Buzzy's Slick Honey All Purpose Grease > Accessories > Shop Supplies > Grease | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    the different weight oils change up the dampening/rebound properties of the fork.

    Slickoleum Grease

    This is the Mfg's (Englund LLC) product - same as "Slick Honey" without the LBS markup.


    And if you want to get into suspension oils...
    This is the place - Suspension Fluid - Pvdwiki

    I would suggest a base-model fork and send it to Avalanche.
