    Try and hold off until the 2006 models come out. Rumor has it that they are putting Motion Control Damping into the Boxxer forks. Motion Control is lightyears better than the Hydra coil crap they have now.

    I'm seriously thinking of getting a Boxxer ride for my new dual suspension build. Motion Control combined with 135-180mm Uturn travel sounds like one sick ass freeride combo. 135 would feel great for trail riding and then when you feel like sticking a huge drop, just flip er up to 180mm.

    I would also wait until 2006 models come out because the Boxxer has (2005 and older) had problems with oil leakage and the fork seizing up (could be from too little bushing over lap on the stanchions due to large amount of travel). Hopefully SRAM has addressed those issues for 2006.

    april of 05 and we are talking about 06 fork already..gotta love the bike industry. i dont think i can go a summer without a fork on my new uzzi. i love my psylo with u-turn. it is 3-5in. the ride with 5-7in will allow me to use that bike on the xc trails during the week and at mt creek on the weekends. also i am going to use the new easton ad-vice stem.
