Since June, i have a 2008 Fox in one of my bikes.

It´s possible that you could have a ´97 model in late ´96, so you can say you have your bike since 96...

the original had 5.5" travel & had a titanium "curved" linkage, the 97' version had the alu cnc'd "flat" linkage with adjustable travel chips in the trunion mount.

i remember selling some of the first in the country, they did a frame kit that had single crown judy dh forks (ive got some :D ), ac chainguide/cranks & other bits i cant remember! but we sold quite a few!

i think they are actully quite important bikes, as developed by nico v. they were the first to have full-on DH spefic geomerty.


Hey!

I have one of those first bikes here!!!!

I'm storing Darrens frame in my garage while he gets his new house sorted, I'll try and get some pics up for the comparison......he's still not interested in selling though :wink: Those RST Hi5 forks he has are horrid, only good thing about them is the hard-to-obtain Speed Spring Kit inside!
