    okay fellas been thinking about getting a new fork and 888 is on the top of the list. its not set in stone, but its deffinatly being thought about. the color is the only problem with me. i know that if i want it bad enough the color wont matter just because its such a kick ass fork that i dont want the color to be the deciding factor in wheather i get the fork or not. so i want your opinion fellas white on yellow hows it gonna look. thanks for your help fellas. :thumb:

    i say it is going to look tight, but black might actually look better. it is just going to make the yellow a little less of a stand out, what do you want the fork or the bike to stand out, white if you want the fork to, or black if you want the bike to u understand

    Ahh... Young grasshopper... You haven't been paying attention to all of your studies... It is not what I choose to tell, but what I am allowed to tell. But according to some guy on MTBR, I don't know anything... :thumb:

    Yes, the espresso bar will be in full effect...

    Todd, what's up? You didn't like Stiffler's Mom?

    the new fork or the bike with the fork on it. cause thats kinda vauge. but the new fork is on marzocchi's web site. you will have to wait till october for the fork on my bike. called the marzocchi techs today and said that they werent going to be out untill october so just enough time to save up money and trade in the super t and get the 888. :thumb:

    think about what you're saying... you just said that the 40 isn't time tested and that it has crappy damping. 40's rock. totally rival the 888. but i'm still a Marzocchi fan so 888's are waaayy better. :thumb: don't worry about the white against yellow on your bike dude. it'll be fine... and if it doesn't, then carl know a guy that could probably get your frame anodized black for cheap.

    Gah! no white on yellow. I'm seeing it in my mind and it just doesn't look right. I've got a grey boxxer on my yellow sgs, but I just can't see white. Go with black.
