    Fork Closeouts?

    I'm looking into buying myself a new fork, when do closeouts typically start for 05 forks when the 06's roll in? I don't mind riding a 05, I just don't want to purchase now only to get burned later.

    Any feedback is appreciated, thanks!

    Dual crown? Single crown? 5 inches, 8 inches? Jumping, dropping, aggressive trail?

    Well, I was trying to get a financial idea of what the 05's would possibly go for in terms of the 66RC, so I want to know what sort of price it'll be like on closeout.

    But other than that, my Hayes suck now, so intead of a new fork I need new brakes.

    Disaster story or just a service issue?
