    It's not an 888 - it's a 999!

    I was just checking some info for my dhx5.0, was looking at ti springs from a company called mojo suspension. They are based here in the UK but I don't know if any of you from the US/Canada have heard of them.
    They have redesigned internals for marzocchi's 888, don't know which ones, and will fit them with a ti spring for $750 i think and have cleverly called them 999's which i think would look pretty cool on the trails. The 999ti internals weigh more than a pound less than the standard 888 internals with ti spring.

    I've heard they make great products. I think they've been making Boxxer internals for a few years.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    i hope you don't think your funny

    yeah they also make boxxer internals too but this i think is a first for 888 internals. look on their site abd there are pics of a marzocchi "999" but I think the decals look crap and cheap.

    OK this is so BOB doesn't wet his pants!!!!!!!
    TRANSLATED FOR YA
    Kit fork Marzocchi 888
    The kit fork BOSS intended for Marzocchi 888 transfigures your fork completely. It is simple, the interior is replaced by a system 100% BOSS, inherited the forks developed for Nicolas Vouilloz or Anne Caroline Chausson.

    Karim Love, ex pilot BOSS within the TEAM Vouilloz was not mistaken there, which hastened to order two kits for its bicycle 2005. And its season D-was crowned of a victory out of Cut of France DH and of superb a sixth place with the championships of the world!

    Marzo kitée BOSS is from now on adjustable in relaxation via the two higher serrated rollers, in compression via the two lower serrated rollers, and spring preloads it is carried out by an accessible serrated roller quickly by unscrewing the stoppers.

    The kit is delivered with a note of assembly and an oil can of fork BOSS.

    It should be noted that the assembly can be carried out in our workshops. It is enough for you to send your fork to us, and we reforward it to you in the tread (to count a one week deadline).

    yea but this as a full internals upgrade - the only thing they dont get rid of is the chassis and the bolts at the bottom of the lowers

    if you just change the springs to TI........how much more weight are you going to save???? is it worth it for that kind of cash......there are other cheaper ways to get the weight down

    I was just poking around on Mojo's website. Apparently they've discontinued the kits until the quality of materials they get is more consistent.
