    Way old news.

    I like the way that the 2006 stuff is looking. Probably going to buy a new fork if I have any money left after homecoming.

    the 888s are pretty good, i don't see the difference between the 2 besides look and weight. can anyone tell me why the shiver is better than the 888?

    Inverted is super cool thats why
    I hear shivers are better for heavy riders

    It cant be stiffer, same size stanchions, but no brake arch.... not possible
    If you put the tire inbetween your knees and turned the handlebars the shiver would flex alot...and 888 would barely move

    Every pro/semi-pro I've asked said it flexes too much. Look at what other companies to to stiffen their inverted forks, like hexagon-clamp dropouts so the legs can't roll forward or backward from each other around the axle (Dorado uses this kind of front dropout clamp, or look at White Brother's newer DH forks, they knurl the sliders where the crowns clamp around them so that the sliders don't twist as easy in the crowns.

    In the end, since you can't really put an arch on an inverted fork, you will lose stiffness. Plus, I don't like the idea of putting the stanchions down there by the rocks and stuff, so that you gouge them up and leak oil out all over your brake pads.
    This election is like a turd in a bag on your porch... whether its a blue bag or a red bag, it's still a turd on your porch.

    the benifits r that since they are inverted the oils that keep is lubricated is pulled down by gravity whichs keeps it well lubricated, ppl like the shiver cause it was "bombproof"
