    nice fork. The VF is the model with the cheaper SSV damping, correct?
    2 questions, is this OEM only, and will they make one with HSCV?
    Also, Scott has some sick, sick bikes in the line up this year.

    Looks like an OEM fork because I havent seen that anywhere on the Marzocchi site. It'll be interesting to compare the A-C heights of that and the 203mm Travis.

    No, but damn close.

    I wonder if a RC2X with that travel will be available...

    Nope. Travis is 203mm.

    The prototype Rockshox was also claimed to be ~200mm.

    Seriously, at that length, RS and Zoke must either be using Aermet for their steerers, or they should suck it up and go 1.5".

    OEM only and if you want to upgrade to HSCV it's going to take a lot of work...D

    ...I gotta admit I hated the way the new long travel single-crown forks looked, but after thinking about it - they really are ideal for freeride. Even if they look like forks designed by Urkel from Family Matters, you can hit big drops, do X-ups (BTW, ever since they started putting this trick in print -like circa 1986 Freestylin' magazine- using short-hand instead of spelling the whole thing, people have sounded like douchebags saying it. They're called CROSS-ups, because your arms cross each other...NOT "X-ups"...) and who knows, maybe even tailwhips - I just say a hydraulic gyro proto so - who knows?

    Yeah a buddy of mine down in Berkeley, well he and his twin brother actually, had a working prototype they showed around at Interbike last year. I think they had it pretty much buttoned up function wise, they were just trying to find someone interested in bringing it to market.

    They are also called X-ups because when you pull a full x-up your arms form a x. :blah:

    ...I know - but after hearing it the right way, and then hearing all these ESPN announcers on X-Games who don't really know or care much about the sport say stuff like that - it just pisses me off.

    ...and NO you may NOT lick my balls.
    :D
