    Terremoto for Whistler?

    Would a Terremoto stand up to the abuse of a month at Whistler?
    I would be using a 2006 marz 66 RC2X 170mm (555mm a-c, only 10mm more than 160mm 36 etc)
    Anyone ridden one at Whistler?

    My X-5 did just fine there so I am sure the TM will be grand.

    Should work out great...I haven't even been close to finding the limit of mine yet. I bet you could bring it down to the Shore too.

    Ajr You'll love Whistler
    Do you have a Demo Terremoto in the UK in medium?
    We've just had all our bikes stolen and i'm trying to find something, maybe one bike, to replace my 4" Transition Preston FR and SX trail.

    I can vouch for that fork in Whistler. I had one on a RM Switch and it handled everything great. I still have it. Don't sell it!

    Hey Uncle Cliffy, I had to make my mind up today whether to send that fork back for a refund (i ordered it the day before all my bikes were stolen )
    But you've helped make my mind up, I'm keeping it!
    Cheers

    I don't want to sell mine as it's been so reliable to me. The new forks with their questionable axel system and taller 565mm axel to crown heights just makes me want to keep it more. 555mm is a good middle ground. Not too high, not too low.
