Well, I got my new fork!!

I didn't think I'd actually ever get the thing.

Supergo put them on closeout, and I jumped on the deal as soon as it was on their website. Two days later, they corrected their mistake, but I had already ordered it. Whooo Hooooo.

Now I'm deciding whether to keep it or not.

Going crazy yet?





The forks are Marzocchi Shiver SC 2004 model.

I only paid $250, closeout "corrected" price was $450, MSRP was $569.00.

So, do you guys hate me or what?????

Nope, I don't like shivers.

Congrats on the new fork though.

I started to buy this very same fork from them too, but backed-out because of the bad reviews. I like the looks though if that's any help.... Upside forks are still big in motocross, but not too much in MTBiking....

I know a lot of big guys that hate them. But who knows you might love it. Gonna have to review it for us. I know some friends that couldn;t stand them because the tracking felt odd as it flexed more.

No kidding. but if anyone has seen a freeride video that is too date. Theres going to be a Durado. Although I was talking with that WC racer and he said he's tried Durado's two of the reds and one of the blues. He said the blue was better but he likes his Boxxer WC with Mojo cartridges more.

Yep there is always at least 1 dorado and like 4 or 5 boxxers (always the racers)...15 marz (always the free riders)...1 or 2 token Manitous (always the street riders)....

A bunch of racers around here seem to be hooked up with Monster T's. Then sh*tload of 888's.

First it's not Durado, its Dorado (sorry just started to bug me)

At our local DH races there is probably a 2:3 ratio of Dorado's to boxxers. Then heaps of Marzocchi, some 888's and Shivers, most junior/super T's.
