The Shiver will always be a Shiver. It is a good fork but it is not by any means one of Marzocchi's best. They tend to flex a lot and the rebound and compression adjustments are not that great either.

I would say look at the Z1 series. Much better forks but depending on how you ride it could work out for you.

As for what they would cost in Canada, know idea.

I'm sure you can figure you how to convert from USD to Canadian but Supergo.com has that on sale right now! http://www.supergo.com/profile.cfm?lProd_id=25314

Don't forget you'll need a 20mm front hub to go with it.

As I mentioned in one of todays other posts, it's the bit in the middle of a wheel that clamps into your frame and is attached to the rim by the spokes .
