What's the Brown Santa bringing this time?

2007 Marzocchi 888 RC2X World Cup
2007 Marzocchi ROCO World Cup

Should be here Wed/Thurs.

I guess I need to build a downhill bike

That would be an appropriate response.

You disgust me

That's a real good start, although I HIGHLY recommend sending back the ROCO and getting a Double Barrel.

I don't know if I missed it or not - have you decided what frame you're gonna bolt them to?

I've had limited time on an 07 Stinky with one (albeit slightly undersprung). Felt pretty good.

Haha, I thought about the CCDB, but it's just a little pricey

As for the frame, 99% sure it's gonna be the Transition Blindside. Called them today, and they said Sept. 1 they're gonna start shipping frames, so that will give me enough time to build a new wheelset and get a new set of brakes.

Now you really disgust me.

Kyle (intern Kyle) has been riding/racing one this summer and he's been telling me good things about it.
