    Lol yeah. That's from my Trek 820 that I just used to mount the fork until I get all the rest of the parts. :p

    That is one hot bike (sans the xc stem, but that will change so it's ok). And I don't care what chillindrdude says, that fork looks great with that frame. Maybe you could have gone with more customizability, but it's a solid fork.

    I was originally going to get an 04 Team from rhythmcycles but they were out so they gave me this for the same price as the 04 Team was that was heavily discounted with coupons and what not. :D I talked to a guy at my shop who used to work at RS and he said that the spiking issues are pretty much all gone from the Race model that were there in 03/04. Plus I figure I can always toss down a few hundred and blackbox/mojo it or something like that.

    I know they upgrade the cartridges, but how much adjustment does a blackbox/ mojo add?

    Just remember, use protection. Put a Lizard Skin on both the chainstay and seatstay, and Put something on the brace between the two near the chainring. I'd hate to see that thing scratched up. Welcome to the club.
