Signs

Tonight, I took my first ride with my new Fox fork.

When I got home, I saw a fox in my yard.


What does it mean?

Amazing, someone else noticed. I like you.

I can tell you what it means if you tell me whether you like your fox fork or not.

As long as the Fox didn't try to steal your new fork.

It's an FRLC80. Color is White Gold. And.....
Oh, wait. You meant the animal. I'm thinking it was a red fox. Color, most likely red, though it was tough to tell in my headlight beams.

Ha! How true. Though I will say that their online manuals and service documents are far better than the other companies.

Thats a sign that you should never abandon your fox fork! Unless the fox you saw was run over by a truck shortly afterwards... cause then you know what will happen to your fork

I'm not in the position to give it any kind of unbiased review yet. My previous fork shot craps a while back, so I've been riding a fully rigid for the past couple months. So the Fox feels like heaven now.

I will say it feels smoother than the Skareb Elite it replaced, and the amount of adjustability is nice. I especially like the lockout blowoff, though I haven't tested it extensively yet, of course. I also had it set up a little too plush for my tastes last night, so I'll be increasing the air spring pressure (forgot to take the pump on the ride).

Give me a chance to ride it a while, and I'll post a review then if anyone's interested.

I think it has something to do with Pluto no longer being a planet. Your fox was attracted to the wild fox becuse the cosmic mojo was disrupted.If you see a Fox riding your fox then its real trouble.

Definitely agree there, just went to their site the other day and was dismayed to see flash everywhere.

So John, what is your purpose here at the forum? What do you hope to accomplish?

I have to hope someone with such a grandiose moniker has more important ways to spend their time then just consistently disparaging the posts made by others, in the typical fashion of an insecure second-hander...
