Sorry for the hijack, but you may need to try straightening out the discs. Sometimes those tektros would come bent.

Actually, what you need to do is get rid of the tektros. They are ever-loving sh*t.

Yeah, I'm already working on that subject in this thread.

What fork are you thinking of getting? 66RC? Z150? Z1 FR I? Sherman? Just wondering, it'll be a sweet setup.

Thanks. DEFINATELY getting a Marzocchi. I won't even look at other brands, especially Manipoo. I'll probably be getting an oem DJ2 with 150 mm or an all mountain, Z1, or drop off. I really like the All mountains because of the adjustability and lightness of them. But, as of now, I'm probably going with that Dj 2. I already bought a new front wheel to compensate for a 20mm axle fork. Check it out
