    I have a few of those too! I think they are better than the boost 15mm chassis. It’s not the same lower as the 2015 fork, in case anyone was wondering. Did you order it from Fox? Friends tell me those are hard to find/purchase.

    Also my 20mm hubs with disc a spacer work on the Ohlins DC fork and the Fox 49. Another issue, is that most boost 15mm hubs are 28 spoke and straight pull which I’d like to stay away from. Like this I can still use my DT 240 Hubs from 10 years ago.

    @Flo33 did you get one? Udi told me you were semi interested.
    I’m prepping for a world with no pinch bolt 20mm forks.

    I bought my 2019 36 thru PUSH. They probably ordered it from Fox.

    I also have a 2016 20mm 36 on an older bike. That one has the PUSH ACS Coil in it. It's pretty sweet.

    With 29" wheels, you can totally tell the stiffness difference w/ the 20mm axel. Totally worth it IMO.

    Which is weird... since I have *no* Asian (that I know of) in my lineage.

    Senility, perhaps?

    :D

    I did buy one of those McLeod’s a week ago, my dps no longer has a “hard” lockout after modification and although it absorbs bumps well, I want a lockout for racing. It’ll be interesting to see how it compares, plus, it comes w/IPA.
