    Check toolbox

    I am in need of a bolt for my Marzocchi MX Air 29 that is no longer available. Can the 29er crew check the bottoms of your junk drawers?

    I know I don't have that bolt, but if you could post the specs too would help. I'm assuming you tried calling Marzocchi direct?
    Get off the couch and ride! :)

    If you can get the dimensions and material specs any decent machine shop would be able to make you something that will work.

    The arch to lowers bolt. The canti brake boss does the same job.

    Yea for 10X the price! Shop rates where I work are $80/hr plus tools and materials! You could buy a whole bag for that much!

    That's pretty expensive! I got four stainless steel cantilever brake bosses for 60 €

    These are specific to the fork. Holds the arch to the lowers with dual duty as the canti boss.

    A hacksaw to remove the brake portion and finish with a large drill bit to make a tapered countersink end. Done at near zero cost and 30 minutes of time.

    I know, and I agree with you.

    I broke one of the canti boss from my Clark·Kent F14 and couldn't find one to replace it, so I had them CNC made.

    Guy really wants bolts. I offered slicing them down and finishing on the lathe for a nice finish. See the other related thread.
