hi everyone i 'm a xc rider in hong kong . but i broke
3 rock shock forks in 2 years.2 judy xl and 1 judy xc.
i never use the forks to go downhill...
although i'm about 90kg ,i don't think the forks boke easily...i never did high jumps.....
I'm surprised, they've usually got a very good name...I was in the position to buy a set of Rock Shox Judy SL's or Marzocchi Z2 Flys, but went for the latter...
I've been impressed since running them, and touch wood, they've not given me any hastle...
Good luck with your forks in the future!!!

hi rich !happy to hear that you bought a Z2......
instead of the rock shock..............but now i ride my
road bike most of the time......
but i used to be a mt bike racer here.....
and you really got a good staff the Z2
now i got a z1 on my mt bike but my brother ride it most of the time he is only 10...and he like mt bike
but i think i like road bike more
whatever you got a nice folk man!!
Do you race your Road Bike now then? I'm going back to racing this season (MTB's that is) but think I might need to stiffen up my forks as they have quite alot of travel in them....at the moment they're like po go sticks!! :)
I must admit, I'm not really into Raod Riding, but bash out the miles for training every so often...I guess Hong Kong must have some pretty impressive terrain!!!
More so than in London UK anyway.....
Take it easy!! Rich
