While my pike is in for warranty this is my fork.

Well, it is my fork to begin with, didn't think I would need it so quickly.





Marzocchi Z1 Bam. My plan is to do a complete rebuild, and a fresh coat of paint.

Had a bit of a harder crash yesterday, didn't notice the crack until I got back to my car. The stanction one was crash related, but there was also a crack forming at the arch I think, if it was only the stanction I could have ordered new uppers.
