Hi All

These were in use on my bike until recently, however Im not sure what they are - RC 35 MXC or MXCD perhaps - no idead on year -I think the graphics were blue and red when the writing was there.......

Oh, for sale on ebay in a few days if anyone wants to make me an offer before I put them up - they work perfectly and are sub 3lb in weight!

Defiant the ones on your serota are RC35's not 30's. 30's are rigid forks.
And the ones on your seven look like 36's (and your brakes are on backwards ;) )

ADP yours look like early RC36's

I have just purchased a pair of forks identical to those and according to the man who knows (justbackdated) they are 1996 RC35's. either MXC or MXCD (if they have the damper cartridge).

Hope that helps. :D

20cm steerer - inch 8th ahead

unsure about the cartridge bit, they actually work quite nicely I have to say, but Im not really into retro bikes as such - though if I had the money I would be though - loving some of the bikes on here especially the manitous and yetis
