    New question here. Romic compression knob: silver vs blue ?

    I have a simple question about Romic shock.

    What's the difference between the one with a silver compression knob vs one with a blue compression knob? (ie. Is silver one of '03 while blue one '04?) I think I've seen it in both colors, while the rebound knob is always red.

    Thanks for your info in advance,

    That it indicates a 2003 model, while in 2004 they went to the colored knobs. I have never seen a mix of silver and red though, Jim

    Thanks for the info. Do you know if there were any significant changes/improvements in '04 over '03? Interestingly, the Romic that came with my '04 Saber ($799 close-out from Wheel World) has a silver compression knob and a red rebound knob. Maybe it's an '03 1/2 model, or some "thrown together" thinggie (by the store)...? Anyway, no biggies, as it's working fine - I was just curious.

    Thanks again for your info/feedbacks,
