    but am trying to get an 03 shiver...

    dream fork would be either 888r with fender and direct mount stem or MRD X-Works Dorado...

    02 Shiver...

    Dream...fox if it has characteristics of a marz and is reliable.

    Lucky13, the Shiver feels a lot like my Monster T, slightly different, but nice.

    currently running an '04 888R and an '04 Slider Plus.

    dream fork... Can't really think of something that'd be better than the 888r...

    Shiver.

    If the new fox DH is like an 8" vanilla, I would be happy to use that. I'd also be interested in an avalanche DHF8.

    dj- 03 marz dj1
    fr-marz z150
    dh-03 rs boxxer team
    i used to ride a 01 monster, but i hated the steering. i love the old monster, but its a bit much for certain types of dh. i loved it for drops dj's and skinnies but hated in on dh courses. the z150 kind of feels like a mini me monster. on todays ride i lagged on the flats and climbs with it but when the trail pointed downhill even slighlty, my kona stab felt just like a dh bike with the z150 up front. the boxxer is a well tuned one and i like the steering but i will replace it with some 05 bling if the big drops start to beat up da boxxer.

    haha you got me. yes im anti bling but the new forks are so nice (like the 04 slider and xworks dorado and 888r works) that if 05's are better, and if i step it up and ride well in the desert, i will get one. but what also intrigues me is that the boxxer is rebuildable and new internals are being built all the time. if push goes public with their boxxer kit they are developing i might just do that. i realized recently that at 160 lbs and a smooth rider i can get away with murder on a boxxer. its so light and manueverable yet can take a huge hit (for some guys).

    That's awesome! Push definitely seems to have some good services so far, just need to widen their advertisement a bit more IMO.

    i have a vanilla rc on my 01 stab and it works like new. the only problem is the bike climbs and rides flats like a v10. so even though i am an anti-bling rider i am sending the fox to push to get the stable platform upgrade in the winter. i can only sell the frame for like 400 so the 160 bucks to push it real good seems like a good deal to me considering a chaparral is a lot more at cost than 560 (yes tony i can get banshee at cost but no im not getting you a chap or scratch or scirocco you bike whore)

    As for XC, a Rock*Shox SID SL 2001, still running like new !

    Happy Drops !

    Yea, I haven't quite figured out it yet. I think I need to get some stiffer springs, the guy before me was like 150lbs and im 200lbs, so it just seems so plush because of that i think.

    dunno

    What I didn't like about Shiver was that if it's plush, it's plush all the way to the end. Monster is more progressive, and feels better on big drops. Again, just a personal choise, nothing against Shiver.

    lol, the real bike whore among us Colorado folk is Todd (snowskilz) lol. But, out of curiosity, how can you get them at cost? do you have hookups at shops or something?

    Loose lips sink ships...

    I've been riding rigid for about 9-10 months or so. Plan on picking up a Z1 or Z150 for my next bike (Chaparral) and maybe another Boxxer for lift days.

    I need a new fork worse than any of you ppl.

    1998 Super T

    I'm running a 1998 Super T that I bought used from Jm. I'm amazed at how well this 6 year old fork performs. I guess my dream fork would be this same one with another inch or two of travel. Since that's not possible, I'll joinn the crowd and say an 888 is my dream fork. But have no plans to change anytime soon.
