Awesome! Steve!! 8) They've turned out rather well hey?...now when you get them riding and you start fettling with the adjustment, let me know what works for tweaking the ride. I still don't really know what settings are going to work best? (mind, not going to get feedback propped up the Garage Wall)...

...that's to plug the pre-drilled hole for a bolt-on cant' hanger; and a matching 'accent' to the Rock Shox logo's 8)

Don't forget the springs take a few miles to 'bed in' so the intial 'feel' will probably change...

The hole is to bolt on the reflector that comes with them, needed in many countries.

can't find a picture of them quickly, but I did find this.

Well this has given me the bump to go rebuild the MAG's and JUDY's I have in bits... well if this new batch of rain stops and the sun comes back again.

Those lights are fantastic 8)


Yeah, go for it fluff, and I forgot to mention in my rebuild posts on p7, that I used rock'n'roll super slick grease on all the 'moving' parts.

It's proper slippery, I don't mind tellin' ya.. :lol:
