Hey Cheeto,I got one too...

....and I don't seem to be having any headset issues. A friend I met while guiding a while back sent me a Marz. All Moutain 1 for just shipping cost. Sweet!

It's a Bullit. That he's keeping.

I think this will suit the Blue Bullit a bit better, though not handle 8 foot drops as well.

There is a big chunch of his skin stuck to a tree on Caney Bottom if you need a reminder.

I had a Manitou Nixon on it.When I bought it I cought all the Manipoo ribbing but after 2 1/2 years of hard trail riding it's sill a solid fork.I've had 0 pproblems out of it. This new fork is a lot more adjustable and will most likely have better small bump sensitivity. I only paid 200.00 for the Nixon new so I fell like I got my moneys worth out of it. I hope to build up a hardtail soon and put the Nixon on it.

That's right, you remember. That was one of the funniest crashes I've ever seen, in a "you knew he had it coming to him" sort of way.
