    Mmmmm, didn't know a fork could be this sexy!!!!

    Check it out, just picked it up this evening. I'm hoping to find time to install it and face the disc tabs tomorrow.





    *weight is with full length steerer tube. I haven't had a chance to cut it down yet.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Looks very nice! A little heavier than I expected. It's probably worth the extra weight though.

    Well I just took it out for it's first ride to kind of dial it in a little since I'll be racing it tomorrow. Unfortunately it was an extremely short ride, my knee could only take 15 minutes. Hopefully a bunch of ice and some advil will help me survive the race tomorrow.

    Anyway, with minimal tuning it felt great. It is going to need some time to break in though, I could definitely feel when the lockout was kicking on and off. One thing I do have to say is that the terralogic lockout thing works a lot better on this one than it ever did on my 2005 F100x. I can stand and hammer and it doesn't move in the least - perfect! Another thing is I really like the axle to crown length on this one much better than on the SID. It is over an inch shorter which gives me a 4" saddle to bar drop. For the life of me I can't understand why RockShox puts such long stanchions on an 80 mm fork, the stanchions are long enough for a 100 mm fork.

    Anyway, here's a crappy picture of it on the bike.

    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    LowCel:

    Take 1000IU of vitamin E and two standardized Ginko Biloba tabs.

    Vitamin E has been proven to speed the healing of muscle and ligament/tendon injuries, and it reduces inflammation. The Ginko will improve your peripheral circulation and get some more blood to the injury, which will also help speed the healing process.

    For the record, I've been taking Vitamin E and Ginko for years. Since I've started using them, I haven't had any muscle soreness at all after a hard workout.

    Thanks CV, I don't know if it will help in this situation though. I knocked the crap out of my stem with my knee cap, the doc said the bone is bruised.

    You cannot bruise bone. You bruised the periosteum...its a fibrous membrane that covers the bone and supplies the osteocytes with blood by way of Haversian canals....and when you bruise THAT, it hurts like hell.

    Take the Vitamin E and ginko...alternate ice and heat every 20 min. It won't heal you up overnight, but it sure will make it feel better, and it WILL heal faster than without the vitamin e.

    Overnight, use a heating pad set on low and an ace bandage for compression.

    Come morning, your knee won't feel like new, but it will feel a hell of a lot better.

    do NOT take asprin for the pain, btw. I would strongly recommend something like Motrin instead, or another NSAID.
