Hi HK,

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!!!

Rich

Cheers HK,

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
