One of mine just snapped when I over torqued it... Does anyone have an extra one I can buy or borrow (or even the qr style setup)? I'm heading down to Fontana early tomorrow morning, so it would be cool if I could find one on the way.

Are you using a standard 20mm thru axel? Because, what you can do is use just a regular bolt with silicone washers. My fork didnt have the lock nut (manitous) and so I put a bolt in and the washers. workes great, still have it on there.

Yeah, regular 20mm axle. I'm going to go to a hardware store and get a bolt and nut. I think I'm going to thread it through the bottom block and top piece, then put a nut. Or, maybe I'll just drill the threads out and bolt it through those.

I'd like to get regular dropouts. Maybe the '07 super T lowers will fit this.

A new $100 used fork. haha I'd like to see if I can just get some new lowers. This design sucks.

I left the top and bottom pieces at home...so I really had to ghetto it out. It held up surprisingly.

as long as it gets you through it, it worked. Haha whether or not it looked great, it worked. And yes, the design sucks
