    You can delete them yourself - go to 'edit ' and the top choice will allow you to delete them.

    That is the best Cove G-spot I have ever seen. The 02 Monster is a little over kill on that bike but it is a sweeeeet fork. Since you are a bigger guy it should be perfect. I give it two thumbs up. The white is tight!

    i love it. it rides really nice. the suspension on it is really balanced and the weight isnt really that bad it think it is right around 45lbs. it pedals ok that is some suspension bob because i am running the fox rc. i want to get a 5th element or get the fox pushed im not sure yet. i just need to get a different rear spring the one i have on there is pretty soft. i havent got much trail time yet but i think i am going to hit some on monday or tuesday to give it a real test:D

    damn nice bike man

    i love my g-spot. i am thinking of getting rid of the monster t for a 888rc but i am not sure yet. i just like the monster so much it just would be nice to have a little less weight up front. but not sure yet
