    Marzocchi fork servicing

    I've got a bottle of this for my next fork service, Motul Factory Line 100% synthetic: https://www.motul.com/gb/en/products/fork-oil-factory-line-light-5w Marz recommend 7.5w but I've also run 10w in the past. Depends how you like your fork to feel.

    Hayes 22mm to flat mount brake adapters

    That's neat. I think I've seen these mounts on Trek VRX bikes too, nice to keep the options open for fitting new calipers.

    What are some of the best 26" MTB forks for rim brakes?

    Best forks? Bombers from Marzocchi, plentiful, easy to service, lots of models available. Coil/air, travel options. Not sure when they dropped the rim brake mounts but still had them in 2003.

    Storing Suspension Forks

    Has anyone got a good solution to storing forks? Not sure how many pairs spare I have, but something like 5/6 sets of Bombers with the steerer tubes attached and 4/5 sets of rigid forks, road and MTB (just moved house and they are all packed in boxes carefully wrapped). Problem is that they're...

    All about Formula Brakes and their 4 bolted hubs

    Do any of you Formula experts know when their calipers changed from FS mount to IS mount? In 1997 Marzocchi Bomber Z1 came with Formula Mount tabs, in 1998 the Z1 Alloy had Formula Mount too whist the Z1 BAM was International standard. By 1999, I don't think there were any Marzocchi forks...

    Identify unknown DBR

    Quick question. I've just been browsing ebay and noticed a Marin with a headtube sticker the same as mine - see pic, with a 'CYC' number on it. I always assumed this was my frame number, but I'm not so sure now. Could it be some kind of tagging scheme like datatag? The sticker and font on mine...

    Campagnolo Record 8 Speed Ergopower fault?

    Thanks for the responses. Looks like I'd better strip the shifter and take a look inside.
