    I was watching and no one snatched one up. I thought it was a decent deal.

    Best price I saw on Qbike was like 630 or so, so it's a good deal. I think my Coiler would ride goofy with 180mm otherwise I might consider it.

    I missed it.

    Since they didn't sell any, hopefully it will come back up later (at a lower price ).

    It should come down quite a bit. Bikewagon had coil and air for under $400 a few months ago (price was above $400 but they had a coupon you could use with it as well).

    I can't remember but they are gone now. I was just saying the price should come down further.

    It's up right now!!!

    C.L.'s been giving up the goods. They had Marzocchi 55 Evo Ti forks on there the other day for $450! I just got some Troy Lee Moto GP pants (in a non-vomit color no less) and a pair of Oakley Crowbar MX goggles for less than a Benjamin.

    I'd try a coil if they drop it to $375. Otherwise

    Dang. Missed it again. Same price?

    Is there a way to sign up for e-mail, or better yet, text message alerts when a particular item comes up?

    Coil rules.


    Don't hold you breath on $375, a Domain 318 has a wholesale cost of almost 300 bucks, so I imagine a Totem is nowhere close.

    Santa Cruz had the Domain last winter for $199 on their web store. OEM prices are lower than wholesale and I assume some of these closeout places are clearing out OEM forks for some companies.

    That is a long shot. It's possible, but I haven't seen Santa Cruz blow anything good out in months. Maybe at the close of the year they will. I snatched up several DHX 5.0 coils from them for a song a while back.

    Is it easy/cheap to convert a Domain 302 to 180mm? code: gobble for 15% off at bikewagon and they have the 302 and old Lyrik 160 coils. The 302 would be less than $200 and the Lyrik coil $288...

    Get the Lyrik coil, 288 is a steal. The Lyrik has a better damper.


    Unless you need 180mm of travel. In which case it's easy to convert over to 180mm.

    How do you convert a lyric to 180mm of travel? Both the Lyrik and the Totem use the same damper.

    the lyrics cannot go to 180 (and do not say "but scott's new genius lt has them!")

    he was referring to the domains, but it was phrased somewhat awkwardly
