    Old New Bruja and New Old Bruja

    Sent my old Bruja frame to Sherwood for a refurbish/refinish. Grinch green to School Bus Yellow. New bearings, welded crack in the chainstay yoke. Now it's new.

    Put a new Marzocchi 55 on the New Bruja. Which is old to me.

    Awesome! What Travel are you running up front on both Bruja's? And how are you liking the 55?

    Thx. Yellow has 125mm z1 freeride. Green has 160. I honestly think the 55 is the best fork I've owned, and I've owned quite a few. WAY STIFF. Buttery travel, great adjustment. I'd like to lower one to 125mm and put it on the yellow Bruja.

    Just rode Monday with my boy Larry on his el Rey. I love that bike. 29er vs 650b is my current 'next bike' obsession. My xc bike is a 17 year old steel jamis dragon with a rigid fork. It's served me well but times have changed and I need to retire it to the old town bike's home.

    Any thoughts on the subject are eagerly welcomed

    Thanks for the feedback, my V1 Bruja is in need of some fork TLC, and I may just retire my 6+ yr old Lyrik and see what else is out there. The 55 has been on my radar for a while.

    Btw, my yellow is 150 up front. Not 125.

    You've created quite a Bruja brouhaha with this post. Both look great but I love the green on the new one.
