Wow why is shipping so high!?
That fork is huge, and dual suspension bikes always cost a bit more to ship; ad to that, it's crossing the boarder from CA to USA, and $125 isn't too bad.
Welcome to the site, Dubduck. It looks like you are keeping this one, and not trying to get it's value for purposes of reselling, so I'll leave this thread open, otherwise I'd lock it, since
We have a valuation thread, here:

Hope your fsr dh exceeds your expectations; buyer's remorse sucks. I don't think you paid too much over. A regular fsr xc can still pull $400 to $500 with a nice mix of parts. The DH model comes up less often, and the boxer fork goes for a bit, on it's own. So, $700 isn't horrible, though you could probably find something nicer for just a couple hundred more on pinkbike (they always have lots of DH/DJ machines...XC, not so much).
