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.

Oh thats crazy, is that more than the travis?
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".

...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?

a hydro gyro all ready exsits. i have seen it, but i don't know who makes it. also it only worked ok.
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.

...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
