Don't know if the bloke actually rides his contraptions - why would you want to position the end of the stanchion tubes of a triple clamp DH fork at the bottom clamp. You do a big jump and you will DIE!!!! :roll:

This is all over STW...some of be guys on there have tried to make contact etc, but the responses are almost impossible to decipher.

That Commencal is mental...those forks are a death trap. I can't believe that people are actually bidding on these things.

If they go cheap enough there are still some decent parts provided he hasnt changed them etc.
