Bought these a few years ago to go on project I had planned, but never did so I fitted them to my XC race bike as they were the lightest forks in the garage at time of building it, Just before I bought them they had visited Tim at Fork English, and have only be ridden 5-8 times, each time only for racing, but have now been replaced with a set of 2013 SIDs :roll:

They are in reasonable condition and ride equally well to my new SIDs (just 200g heavier :wink: )

They are 100mm travel, but can be changed internally to 80mm, the stanchion are smooth, apart from 1 area approx 60mm up from seals (so 60mm into travel) where the are about 4 small (about the size of a full stop .) black dots - and one very small ding -this doesn't effect performance at all (or leak grease/oil or seem to change)

Visually they are pretty good, but there are also a few small patches where the original paint has been scratched (on the magnesium) so has been touched up (as can be seen in some of the close up photos - but not really noticeable normally. I have greased them every ride (I'm a bit obsessive like that :roll: ) oh - they have a 1 1/8 189mm long steerer and have remote lockout!

I paid £140 for them early last year, so I would like £100 collected from OX7 (postcode) or LE11 (after 25/09/13) or can post for £110. Also if I can find them I'll include some spare circlips for them (meant to be replaced during each rebuild apparently - approx 5/6 left) I'm also open to swaps for hope race x2/tech v2 brakes - especialy in green :mrgreen: - or any other green anodising, carbon flat bars (>630mm) or an XT/XTR shadow plus rear mech (clutch type) :D

some photos...
Overview - ... sp=sharing
Ding + Dots - ... sp=sharing - as you can see they are not very obvious (this was the most obvious of about 20 photos I took to try to show it :| )

and more.... :facepalm: ... sp=sharing - disc tab ... sp=sharing - decal 1 ... sp=sharing - another photo of ding ... sp=sharing -length ... sp=sharing -lockout ... sp=sharing - decal 2 (other side) ... sp=sharing - other side of disc tabs - look a lot worse in pic than in real life :( ... sp=sharing -crown ... sp=sharing -bridge

hope this helps and need any more feel free to ask :D
