    Price:
    200
    Size:
    160mm, 9" steerer tube
    Location:
    Mountain (AZ, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, UT, WY)
    Fox Vanilla fork, coil spring.
    160mm travel, 20mm q/r axle
    RC2 damper (low/high speed compression + rebound adjustment)
    Straight 1 1/8" steerer tube: 9.5" long

    This is a used but BUTTERY smooth coil fork. Fork has been regularly serviced and all adjustments work perfectly. Fork will include all following spare parts:
    - all (3) coil springs for all weight riders
    - spare Fox low friction seal/service kit
    - spare Fox RC2 damper bladder kit

    There are scratches on the lowers and stickers, and minor wear and scratches on the crown. There are faint scratches on both stanchions, none of which leak or affect the seals. Honestly, they're superficial, but they're present and you'd want to know. See pics for examples.

    I think the asking price is fair based on the condition and the addition of all the spare parts. PM van 36 (1).jpg van 36 (2).jpg van 36 (3).jpg van 36 (4).jpg me with any questions or offers. Thanks!

    I measured as best as I could. It appears to be about 546mm, +/- a couple mm.

    Great deal on a great fork...I was a hair from getting it straight out but really couldn't use something with that much travel on my Sovereign. Gonna stick with the rigid front end for now and rebuild my old Z1SL doppio which has travel reduction.

    smart move, I think.
    I had a 36 TALAS on my Sovereign for a little while and though 130mm was great, 160 was waaaaay too tall.

    Yeah, I considered dabbling in cutting the spring and using a spacer under the top-out assembly, but I have never been inside a Fox fork, and if I'm gonna do fork surgery, some Enduro seals and new oil ought to sort out the Z1 just fine. Lighter to boot.

    Glad the fork's got a good home to get to.

    I hacked one of those down to 110mm to put on a jump bike. It's pretty easy.
