    White 80mm Gold Label-->WHERE?????

    Well, I was back looking at forks again and just when I wanted to find myself a 80mm white gold label (thruaxle), cant find one!!!! pricepoints are gone (have gold labels, no white) and so are many other stores. beyond bikes says they have 80mm and 100mm, and they have white or black in the description, but there is no place to actually select white. And my shop is asking way too much. SO, where are they? Are they just clearing out 2006? are whites coming back in 2007? If so, when?

    Thanks, any info on this, or 2007 gold labels would be apreciated.

    I got mine at Pricepoint, but I guess they are sold out now.

    See if your LBS will match the price, or atleast come close. I think they pay the same as the mailorder shops do so if they want your bizness they should price match.

    The 07's are the same, except they're called Gold Label Street Series instead of Gold Label Jump Series.

    If you really can't get a 80mm, just get the 100mm white and reduce it. The fork might even include the travel spacers.

    Don't know where to get an 07. Actually, there's probably a chance that there is some tiny detail that has been changed (such as a change in decal lettering size/place etc, or maybe a slightly decreased weight), but it will be 99% for sure the same fork (Save for name)

    Once I think about it, I've never actually seen a white one for sale. Always black.

    I did a little searching, and ride-thisdotcom is billing itself as the only place that carries white gold labels. They're running 399.99.

    I was looking for some info on the '07 gold labels last week. I think I did a yahoo search. Anyway, a couple sites I ran across said they were available in off white and green for '07. They had a pic of the off white and it looked really good IMO.

    The "off white" doesn't really look any different than the 06 white ones did. I think the green looks pretty sick though, it's like a kawasaki green. these guys are selling the 07's already, http://www.ride-this.com/product.php?item=20150203
    Enjoy yourself, bi***es.

    thanks does anyone have any pics of the 07's (just want to see the new colours.)? I could only find one site and it was from the UK that actually had a pic of the green one, but it couldnt be enlarged.

    thanks a bunch for that link. The 5th down isnt actually a gold label, but I think an R7 or some other manitou. But, looking through the pics, i found that in the very last pic of the intense, you can see the green gold label in the background! i though it would be the same colour as the fork on the 5th bike down, but it seems to be a bit different. Thanks alot for that link.

    I dont think that the grind plate has changed from 06 to 07. Hopefully it is the 07 (not that it matters much, just for bragging rights ) Unless I magically fall in love with the tan or green at ride-this.com.

    The White One

    I thought the White ones only came as OEM forks. IF you bought one seprate from the Bike I didn't think white was avaliable. But I believe Beyond Bikes sales OEM stuff from bikes they have disassembled.
