    Haha, the anniversary orange? I have that that fork actually. It’s a very different color than the fork…I can’t get a good picture of the new RFX…its got much more pearl and depth than the Marz fork. Needless to say…the Z1 is getting sold and is being replaced with a 55ATA.

    You know...I haven't done any research yet. My 888 WC ATA is so nice that I sort of just figured......shame on me. Suggestions?

    the contenders seem to be 55, Lyrik, Wotan, 36 - I think I would go Lyrik solo air or 36 Van RC2 - probably Van RC2 as I think it would be more reliable and I don't see a need for travel adjust personally. If you want to reduce trave just for climbing try a Lyrik 2-step. (early model issues appear fixed) If you want low weight a 36 Float RC2. Lot's of choices though - but definitely search a few threads - there must be a million what fork for my RFX, I do remember Lokotiki here being unimpressed with his 55 in particular.

    Ya, keep the 07 Z1. RC2 damping is superior to the TST (5, micro, or whatever else their marketing department calls it).

    Or get a 2006 66? Sorry to rain on the parade but the 55s currently have some issues (nothing second year of production wont clean up).

    Liking the RFX man. Loving the trail shots. Perfect stuff to totally ignore the brakes on!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    looks great, one thing has always puzzled me about some of the ride shots on the turner forum. the couch ones are and always will be great but the ride ones.
    HOW DO YOU STOP to take photos with trails like that? i just want to jump in and rag the arse off my highline when i see stuff like that.
    great bike.
