    1. Probably, I don't think I know of a fork that can't be lowered, well, except rigid forks...whatever.
    2. REALLY? Lets think about this. You have a '10 Boxxer. It has an a2c of 550mm (just a random guess). You take that fork and LOWER it 25mm. Are you really asking to do 550 - 25?
    Slow is cool too, right?

    AC remains the same at 568mm for 2010, so there's your starting point

    I asked Manuel what his axle to crown height was, then I asked him to write an essay. I asked him later if he wrote the essay, but he said his ese never wrote him back. I was dumbfounded.

    That's funny...he just told me yesterday that he emailed it out to you...check your spam/junk folder.
    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    I will soon be the proud owner of a used 2008 Boxxer Team. This will be my fixed coil sprung fork in almost 18 months.

    FACK dude... why don't you ever come and hang out on Thursday night with me and my bro and some buddies? We're at University Chicken (aka SmokesEaters... but it'll always be CLUCK-U) every Thursday night at 10pm. Two of the guys that show up are my riding buddies.

    P.S. Nothing beats a 2am run to La Vic for two Super Quesadillas and orange sauce.
    Meh.

    OK, first flame, why not take that say $700+ dollars and buy a used Orange frame since apparently thats the only bike you'll ride

    No idea, but you want to put it on everything. There's a rumor they sell it at Costco, but we falsified it, and believe, we spent a solid hour looking.
