    I've got one of those sitting on my patio right now. After I move and get a real garage again I'm turning it into a shop stool.

    From the looks of it Risse are marketing their forks to the fat tire market.

    Because who cares about a damping system outdated by a decade and boat anchor weight when you can mount a 4"tire

    part of me wonders if they're just trying to burn through decade old inventory

    if they wait a few more years then hipsters will discover an old VHS of "double down" at the thrift store and hucks to flat on 24" wheels will suddenly take off again. If there's anyone out there sitting on a stockpile of seismic hubs, hold on to those bad boys.

    The last time they were relevant was when they made flat crowns for when the Marzo 888 was released.

    Yeah, they're trying to market to the 4" tire crowd but when you click on the pic to expand or zoom in, nothing happens.
