    What happen w/Marzocchi

    Found an 03 Catalog and it said this

    "Close your eyes and imagine a mountain bike suspension fork that looks, rides, and performs like a lightweight motorcross fork. Imagine a fork that will cruise your favorite DH course like eating candy. Imagine showing up at your local freeride zone and ruling. Imagine buttery - smooth bottomless travel--compliments of an ajustable Open Bath Hydraulic Damping System--and a cush ride whether you're ticking small bumbs or floating big hits. Now take a look at the Shiver DC inverted DH/FR suspension forks, and see the future of your riding experience.


    Man where is my future??...bring back the Shiver

    that was 03' its 06' now, all the forks released this year are just as good, or better than a shiver, and weight alot less, plus nobody wants to spend 1100 on a shiver anymore

    888

    Just get a 888 and get over it. Then you'll know what buttery smooth and stiffness feels like. I know everyone's attached to the inverted, but there is a reason why they came and faded away.

    That quote, it's hard to believe they spelled "motocross" wrong in it.

    I see plenty of used Shiver forks floating around. I'd think that if someone were to replace any damaged or worn parts it'd be good as new. I've seen people anodize the outer legs black too.

    I'ze got me sum of dem karben fibra shivers thats got manipoo ritten on da sides.

    I'm going to have to agree here, Shivers (DCs) are awesome. Too many people are into buying the latest and greatest "race" fork pushed by the companies and their riders. How many Monsters and Shivers are out there still being abused? Lots. How many of these "race forks" are out there? A lot right now, but the future will be interesting. Just because a racer can win on a certian fork, and that's what is being advertised by the companies at whatever particular moment doesn't mean that the product will be a good "downhill fork" for a rider that's just looking for something that works well and is reliable. I got really sick of little pansies complaining of the 8.5lb shiver, especially when the direct competition the dorado was 8lbs, but the name of the game these days seems to be "how can we make a 4lb 9" fork"? Put new bushings and oil in an old shiver and you got a pretty badass fork,

    I had a 6" rotor on the little shiver in the picture, because I really liked my brakes pumping up and when I had an 8" avid and used the brake, I could feel (and see) the bike being pulled to the left. I didn't feel like an "ambi-turner" with the 8" avid on that fork.

    For damping/supension performance, they are excellent.

    For handling/tracking, they are poor.

    Still not true, if you run a lot of shuttles, with a lot of people. The stanctions are much more likely to be scratched on an inverted fork. I know from experience.

    After riding a Shiver for a year from Utah to Canada, and then riding a FOX DH40 in the same spots for the next year, you couldn't pay me to go back to the Shiver. The 40 blows it away in every catagory. I've had the 40 rebuilt one time in a year. Some idiots even tried to say you couldn't huck a 40.

    Oh $hit! I never have heard of that. I only ride and pack bikes 7 days a week fool. Inverted forks get scratched easier than regular ones running shuttles. It's that simple.

    doesn't work like that on the STINC, tie downs don't even hold your bike in place. driving the shuttle road was almost as fun and dangerous as bombing the STINC......

    you obviously have no clue since you've never had the pleasure of shuttling the STINC, the bikes bounce around so hard, the knee pads wouldn't even stay in place. as a matter of fact, you would even be too scared to drive your 4runner up and down this road, this should give you an idea of how bad things can get. don't even think you could hold your bikes either. you have to white knuckle the truck so hard or you will get seriously ejected down over the side into a few hundred foot ravine. no time to hold or worry about your bikes. imagine10 bikes in a giant clothes dryer.......

    if you ride pretty hard they blow seals, and they dont even feel that great, plus their heavy and flex.so many forks out right now that will kick a shivers ass for racing, or just freeride, so why put out the shiver when you can go with better forks for the same price or cheaper? a few examples:
    06 boxxer WC
    06 Fox 40
    06 Marzocchi 888rc
    anthing Avalanche

    You're right, we should stick to ultra light 1 (maybe 2) season forks.

    Thanks. Here is a better pic. It shows the frame color much better, plus it has the new seat on it (not the fugly captain america one)...and more importantly, shows the bike actually dirty

    For the record, once this fork goes I am probably going to go Fox. I have ridden a couple of 888's but didnt really dig them too much.

    not trying to be a dink or cocky but either way its gonna come out like that, but it seems like nobody on here (besides a couple people) actualy ride hard enough or just enough period to need something that high end. i rarely see pics of people actually jumping racing or hucking there "sick new rigs" that they post pics off..just kinda funny. but hey, i dont know anyone on here personaly to actualy make that judgement, but i have met up with alot of people over the forums and they suck @$$, and have nasty bikes. but the shiver was like the top of the line marzocchi. so if your interested in why they stopped putting it out, go ride some of the other "top of the line" forks out there now. shiver has no competition. thats why they stopped production of it.

    another shiver DC owner here. soon the owner of two.

    I love it. I wish they were still making it/ wonder why they stoped making it. it's one of the easy'est forks to ever work on.

    If they were ever going to make it again.
    here is what i would like.

    have two types.

    DH race: carbon fiber, 8.5 inches, with nitro charged rebound dampening.and all the other stuff that the old one had

    DH/FR: aluminum, 8.5 inches, nitro charged rebound dampening,and all the other stuff that the old one had

    I think Shivers felt awesome. Super plush and great small bump sensitivity. But 888s feel damn good as well. I'm pretty horny for a long legged pair of 888s right now so I'll just give props to the old skool rides and move on with the new skool vibe.

    i love the way my 888 feels and handles, although it is heavy. the shiver sounds like a great fork but seems very heavy, and after feeling how my bikes feel after a diet of some sort, i can definetly be a weight junky at times which is exactly why i may sell my 888 to get a boxxer wc/team or a 66rc2x. just depends.

    SMT represents the SHIVER because it works well for him, just as anyone else reps the products that they have good luck with..doesn't matter what you ride as long as it works and you can shread riding it
