    I am 5'10.5" and ride a LG and it is no where near to big so I believe you could take a Med or a LG

    Serial number should be by the MonoLink tabs on the main triangle & swing; earlier versions were engraved, later versions have a sticker.

    Thanks for answer Baha
    There is a good offer in Chainreaction for a M size.
    But I think that the M is a bit little for me.

    Banks, I'm asking for the serial number in the Duc32 fork.
    I bought it past summer and I'm trying to register it.

    Regards from Spain.

    Medium will be too small

    Go for a Large. The serial number should be under the lower crown or on the back of the lower crown I think.

    Serial numbers on the SC & DUC are on the non-drive side dropout.

    Hi again.
    I'm sorry, but I can't find the serial number on the fork.
    A pic of yours to help me?
    Another questions for the gurus...
    Is there any difference between the ML8 from 2006 and the 2008?
    I'm looking for second hand one.

    Thanks a lot!

    Ironman_u-

    Due to the glare, it's impossible to get a picture of the actual Serial Number itself, but the red arrows are pointing to its' location. All 4 of my DUC's have the SN in the same spot next to the brake mount.

    Ironman, if you cannot find any number tahan you have a fork with no number!
    We had a small batch of forks that we're assembled in Boulder in about 05-6' so there we're no serial numbers engraved. We have a name for these forks "matt" the guy that assembled them, you can right that down on the resistration card and we'll know. But look in all the places to make sure!

    You're nearly the exact same size as me, an XL is definitely what u want. I think I saw one on Ebay for a great price.

    How long until the head tube shears off ____________________________ ?So to add to Banks message. Please be very careful running this fork on this bike. That bike was designed for a 80mm travel fork and a "soft" fork at that. The DUC is designed for todays bike frames with much better technology, design and materials. We would be very hesitant to run this fork on the Trek "Y" bike. Take care Iromman, we do not want to have the next picture on MTBR of your broken teeth.

    Yes, but be careful!

    Get your ML8 as soon as you can.
