I think he means "fork and shock" pump. a pump for both rear and front shocks.

Thanks for the complements guy! In the end it cost me $2350 CND...I'm about to leave for it's first test ride

And yeah I meant a pump for the forks/shock Jason, not anothing fork sadly. Over time when parts break I'm gonna turn it in the expert or better!

You know your supposed to take pictures of the bike with the drivetrain facing the camera... That's why they put the labels on that side of the tires. I guess your proud of the hydros, I would be too.

also make sure to set your watch to 10:10 before photographing

Huh I never knew I'll take some more pics sometime and put it in the "My Rig" thread. And whats with the 10:10 thing? Maybe I'm and idiot and it when right over my head!

Went on a test ride today...DAMN! It's freakin awesome...climbs awesome...decends awesome...even jumps awesome! I didn't have enough air in the rear shock so it had a bit to much sag but that'll be fixed tomorrow. Barely has any pedal bob uphills and none when cranking away on flats. I'm actually really impressed with the Fox DHX3.0 in the back really nice and plush. Only complain I have at the moment is I wish it had at least 150mm in the front, but I'll just updrage once it breaks!

I think you can send that fork to Marzocchi and have them upgrade it to 150 mm.
