Yes i know all about the recall etc for these forks, and they arent that great, but i owned the white legged version bitd, and since discovering this site, have always been on the look out, and scored these a couple of weeks back attached to a cheapy muddyfox, so couldnt resist, i'll give them a good clean up and go from there, in pretty good nick, i doubt i'll try them out on a bike properly, but very nice to look at.

PMSL! :lol:
I was just about to type the word 'Activator'!!!!!

Had some Unishock's on my Scott Unitrack CST, didnt get on with them tho'. I'm sure these would be a lot nicer though, but cant help but think the whole Unishock design looks cheap with not having a nice machined crown.
