    Still pondering a fork change, worth it to go from my 2011 888 RC3 EVO Ti to a 2015 Boxxer Team?

    behind you, don't wait up.
    No idea, but I'm thinking of offloading my '15 Float 40 RC2 with all the latest and greatest. LMK if interested.

    do you feel a performance loss with your 888??



    I was trying to sell my '11 boxxer team w '15 charger damper and got no bites.. so i bought the air upgrade and I love the fork again.
    air vs coil is a personal preference. I was in-between spring rates, so having air to perfectly get that PSI + the options of tokens is really awesome.

    2 of my friends have 380s and love them
    and one of my friends has a 40 float and also loves it

    now-a-days.. i feel like there are no shitty DH forks coming out
    especially a rux

    Yeah, maybe I'll just change the oil and save the cash. The bike is still way faster than I'll ever be and I have other things that need the money spent on them.

    She is alive again!

    If you zoom in you can see the crack above the top speed hole. @kidwoo


    The entire link is bent/twisted so I'm guessing when the shock bolt broke in half, the entire thing was torquing to one side.

    No more creaks....
