    Anyone know what went wrong? It can eject forcefully, so seizing? Damper locking?

    I talked to Zoke this morning, the recall only effects OEM 888 RC3's and WC's manufactured between July and Sept 2007. They said it only covers about 150 total forks.

    Good luck getting one, they are going to be backordered for a while, which is why I pulled the trigger to try to get in on the first batch. You ante up the cash and I'll see what I can do

    Release date is March 24th, but from the sounds of it, its going to be a very limited release. Hammerschmidt is the same deal, the cranksets are ready to go, but SRAM hasn't got the required facing tool available yet, so even if you can get the cranks, you can't install it properly.

    The chances of getting one in the first batch, even if you pre-order them is probably 0.0000005%

    QBP is only getting 50 units for their first batch and are limiting dealers to 2 each.

    Its like playing the lottery, I just figured I would buy a ticket.
