Chris, that looks ace.

Are they the carbon Unishocks (hard to tell from the pic)?

A lot of them were recalled.

I have one that is totally frozen. I wanted to see if I could get it working because it's painted to match one of my Groves. I emailed Hippie-Tech about rebuilding it, but they said they couldn't do it. :cry:

I seem to recall a few magazines that paned them as rubbish, but never having ridden (or even seen) a pair, can't say. but they were cool, but now as cool as manitou or RS

There were cool forks, because the crown was quite stiff (unicrown built) and quite very lightweight in comparison with other suspension fork of this year.
Different quality too, from a aluminum-spring to carbon-elastomer :wink:
