I've just retired my Stratos Super 8s, I'm not 100% sure of the year but they built these form about 98/99 to 2004 I think.

they are absolutely huge, not just in travel but in length too so loads of scope for HA asjustment.

20mm bolt through, 8 inch travel, nice long steerer, silver and black, rebound adjust.

Working fine, as with all upside down forks you get a tiny bit of oil on the sliders after hard riding but they don't leak and seals are easy to change yourself.

threads in the top crown need to keep an eye on, i had to fit slightly longer bolts as the first few threads were stripped about 3 years ago but been fine ever since as long as you take care doing all bolts up in turn.

I really really don't want to post them cos of the size and weight of them so if anyone local is interested im after about £60 collected.

can sort pics out later but batteries in camera just died :-(
