a) You can never have too many nice bikes, and
b) There is no acceptable reason to not ride a bike.

:lol: taken a bit out of context i believe. i meant that i have many other nice bikes in better suitable riding condition for me than this particular one, so why ride this bike to the race event next week, when there's something probably more appropriate?

Thomson stuff is nice, but I thought some Syncros and Race Face would suit much better. ;)

It had to go, but I must admit the carbon riser weighed next to nothing! :shock:

not NOS, but minty. desc was that it was stripped from a new older mountain bike. found one small nick on one side on the decal but other than that, from what i can tell, this could pass as near new. need to cut down the steerer, which is supposed to be 10" worth. :shock:

need to find a manual to figure out how to tune the fork. i see that i can pump air into both legs near the brake posts.

so this should be a proper 65mm fork that's appropriate for the frame, but looks a little long. what do you all think?

Yes they are 1999 Z2 Superfly, the only year they made them, they changed the name after that and altered the brace

What would you like to know.

As would you believe I have a pair, recently taken to pieces to fit new bushings.
Have the docs (a technical one and better than the one that comes with it) the since lost the pdf so only a print out.

Oil weight is 7wt, and I doubt you alter that (there are two places to put it), other than that it's air pressure and the height of the oil in a similar way to MAG's if you know them. You should have an elbow bend adaptor to put on air valve as afaik it makes getting the correct press right. Oh and you have to take the brakes of each time you wish to alter the air !doh!!.
There is also a long allen key you should have to alter the rebound etc which turn the bits recess far inside the bottom legs.
