I shall be using the bike on playgrounds for the year six lot when I'm teaching proficiency ...sometimes it's easier to demo instead of talking about it...plus I needed an excuse to buy the fat bobs for the san Andreas as the schwalbes came off that un

What are those forks, they're mahoosive and also look slightly home made :?

oversize fork tubes that make oversize frame tubes look skinny, weird :?

Keep your eye open for some Rock Shox psylos on ebay or on here. They can be had for £30 or not far off. Good forks as well.

Pull the damper out of the ZZYZX and see what's stamped on the side :shock: (and so you're not scatching your head and wondering WTF?, it's a Hannebrink designed fork, which more or less explains it).
