Hi,

Just trying to gauge any interest on people wanting to replace their Marzocchi steerer tubes with longer or smaller/bigger diameter????

I can probably do this for about £25-£30 + postage costs

I know how much i can do Z2 Bombers for but still need to find out if the other models have differing tube measurements.

Let me know what you think!

I recently had a new easton steerer for z2 Bams ( bolt up crown ) and the tube alone cost 60 bloody quid !!!

So if you can do it cheaper , i think you will get plenty o ' work on 'ere !!

Well I can do my 96/7 Z2 Bomber lights for less than £30

The steerers are the manufactures own and not just tube cut to length and pushed in before anyone asks lol

Don't need my steerer changing, but are you able to get Shiver 20mm axles?

I think that he means steerer pressed in, too for that price

They are £19.99 from windwave new but then you have to pay to get them pressed in

If its not included then ignore me :lol:

Yes this is pressed in too, windwave charge you £20 ontop to fit it and then postage ontop of that. also they will not sell it direct to you only through a dealer, so they will probably mark it up a little.

Its fine if you have a clamp style bridge but it needs pressed out and in if not.

Hey, i`m not trying to rip people off, just offer a cheaper alternative to an already catered for solution! :D

I`m doing mine so as long as that gets done i`m happy! :wink:
