    BW .8 - Seal quality?

    I was wondering if anyone can comment on how the White Brother forks handle the usual mixture of mud and abundant water. Does anyone run them with boots? Being manufactured in dryish Colorado I'm curious how they hold up to an Alaskan beating. Thanks

    Shouldn't be to much of a problem.

    It is so easy to clean a WB fork, It should just become some of your standard after muddy ride maintanence. Just buy some slick honey and keep it in your tool box. pull out the dampening adjustor, remove the lock out switch, loosen the lower slider bolts, and drop the sliders off the stanchions. Clean things up, apply slick honey, and reverse the disassembly process.
    MTBR is serious stuff.
