    Looks like a 2005 team. Does it have u-turn?

    No U-Turn but it does have 200 mm of travel and Ti Nickel Hydride coated legs.

    I keep looking on google for pics but none that ive seen have the same stickers on the lowers. I guess thats why I'm so confused. I got the fork for $170 so I'm not to worried about the condition. Thanks

    Did they ever make a Boxxer with Ti Nickel Hydride coated legs that wasn't a WC?

    It's not an 05. The 05 got the new arch design (more rounded rather than flat). It does appear to be a WC. No Motion Control damping though... no good.

    It's not an '05 Team, I have one.

    2005 was the year of the SRAM acquisition. They really started bringing things around that year. The Pike was the hot ticket.

    Oh, I was speaking mostly in terms of the Boxxer. I think 2006 is when Rock Shox got things going 100%.

    Was 2005 the first year of the Boxxer Ride? But it didn't see MoCo until 06, right? The old damping system was crap, no argument there.

    That doesn't look like an '04 WC from here, but I'm on my laptop and can't see anything....

    Heres a pic of an '04 WC on my old Demo.

    Mine is an 03 WC right? I think the lowers are from an 01 ?
    It also has an air assist top cap on the LH leg. I don't need any air in it even with my 195# weight.
    Fork feels real great.
