    Good job!

    Sweeeeeeeet. This is almost like being there! Not really....*sigh*. Great reviews BTW.

    Get a hold of the 36 Vans! I'm sure it's on your list anyways.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Real 06 Zoke weights, from Interbike...

    I am carrying a digital scale around the floor show with me (yes, I am king geek) and tossed a few of the new Zokes on it. Here is what I found. Note all are with full steerer tubes AND the thru-axles installed. They have oil in them also as far as I know. Brian Peterson was there too.

    66 Light 6.50#
    66 SL (with fender installed- subtract maybe 3oz/100g) 5.88#
    66 VF2 6.75#
    66 BC2X 6.43#
    Z1 Light (with fender installed- subtract maybe 3oz/100g) 5.75#
    AM SL 4.5#

    The Manitou R7 Platinum was 3.3# BTW.

    Mav had near production seatposts there- 450g. None that fit Turners. 30.4 (or something) and larger.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Very reasonable weights for such burly forks- upgrading from my Z150 won't add any weight, but I''l get bigger stanchions, more travel, and more sphisticated internals!

    Did you guys get any ride time in on any of the 66 forks?

    Thanks for the great reporting tcheezy, much appreciated. whats your paypal, all us turner homers should pitch in and buy you a 6-pack. (beer that is!)

    5.88 is not too bad considering that includes the axle. If I'm correct this model travel adjusts via the negative pressure so it will be the only 150mm travel 66 available in the US?? Now if it came in white I would say we have a winner!
    Nothing to see here.

    Great job on the weights.

    So an ETA cart weighs more than a long coil spring? Never would have guessed it.
