    Dude, we already went through this. Also, be aware that the Dorado DH is a VERY short fork, 542.5 A-C, and will make the V-10 steep. Around 68.5*-69*.

    k i found this out from ridemonkey
    "Fox DH fork is sub 7 lbs (first production run is 6.8 lbs and they expect it to get less). Travel is 8" internally adjustable to 6". Adjustments External Rebound, External Dual Adjust Compression - High/Low (RC2 only), Spring Pre-load. Has Ti springs"

    amazingly light...wat do u reckon about it the sherpa? comparing to 888 or even a dorado dh?

    I personally believe people have fallen into Fox's wonderful media game. 40mm stanchions on a sub 7lbs fork is going to be impressive but you KNOW weight is sacrificed somewhere (i.e.-super thin lower and super thin stanchions and plastic internals). Also, Foxs were supposed to be released around know but they got pushed back because of known problems . Fox forks also has a BAD reputation for their first release forks. I'd also be VERY,VERY suprised if the real fork weight was below 7lbs, i'd say 7.2 w/oil and crowns (but this is PURELY speculation).

    All 3 forks are going to be great forks but i believe the Dorado DH has a superior performance, than the 888 and then the Fox. TPC+ is simply amazing feeling and has a great ramp up but so does a properly tuned 888.

    Get a 888 Works with Lowrider crowns and 200mm of travel.

    Weights


    Fox- 6.9lbs + .53lbs (Truvativ Holzfeller Stem ~ 7.43lbs w/ stem
    Marz 888- w/ oil and intergated stem ~ 7.8lbs
    Dorado Dh- w/ integrated stem ~8lbs

    I picked the middle ground of performance and weight. 888 will also be loads more reliable.

    I encourage you to get Ano black because it is simply beautiful. Also, head down to your LBS and have them order you up a 888 Works 0R if your shopping online check out Go-Ride as they will custom tune your 888 fork for you and get you all set up without having to pay more for the works. I'm not really sure what MSRP is on 888 Works (i get EP) but i think it's around $1400.

    FWIW
    DH 2.0: 7.8 LBS
    888: 7.2 lbs
    Shiver: 8.0 lbs
    Dorado 7.75 lbs

    All weights according to manufactures. They all seem pretty comprable to me

    Well, your wrong. Marz. 888 weight is without a steerer, Shiver weight is without a steerer or crowns and the Dorado is more than 8lbs. Also, the '05 DH 2.0 is 8.4lbs according to WB. I've seen or talked to people who have had those on real digi scales. All weights from manu. are wrong except a select few.

    The 05 888r from axle to crown is 575 mm
    The Dorado from axle to crown s 542.5 mm

    The go-ride lowering thingy decreases the hight with 1 inch = 25.4 mm so the 888r becomes 549.6 mm. It's just 7.1 mm which is 0.71 cm... for those in US it's 0.28 inches more than dorado.

    I would definitetly go with a dorado on the v10..

    at least I am doing that on mine.

    Marz website says 605mm, but i physically measured about 610mm. This is at the lowest possible point. I also have a 888 Works w/ low crowns that i'll measure and post back tomorrow.
