Why yes, I do. This picture is a little dated though.

Would you either:
1) Run stanchion guards, and possible have to put new oil in it sooner than expected. Maybe $30 at a LBS if you don't know how?

or

2) Not run them, possible ding your stanchion, have to purchase a new upper assembly and send the fork off to be rebuilt? For a Lyrik (just throwing number out there), it runs about $320 for the uppers alone, add on service and you're looking at about $400? That's for RockShox, I'm sure Fox charges quite a bit more.

Choice is a no-brainer for me.
Non sequitur. I'd keep the stanchion guards for a muddy day, but would keep them off all the rest. If you don't throw your bike on the ground, there aren't going to be many rocks coming up at the stanchions. How would they get there?

Unless you have angered the forest sprites, or unless you plan on tossing your bike where it shouldn't be tossed, the front wheel won't kick rocks up anywhere near the stanchions, if it kicks them up at all. Mud on the backsides is a problem, which is why I would keep the guards for the nasties.

My new ride ~ 2007 Marin Rift Zone ... have had it on the trails a couple times this week. It's fantastic. Utterly fantastic. Can't find a fault with it. Hopefully I'll get much better in action photos soon.

My bike...


Friend's bike...


After a million attempts I got this picture. The picture was shot by me and is of me, so the timing is a little off.


My day of riding ended when this happened...

Riding with a rock wall right next to you? Theres a few places on my local DH trail where you go over this little rack garden, w/ a rock wall to the right, not a smooth wall, but with jagged rocks. Very easy to nic a stanchion.

You don't get it.

If you use a lizardskin as a "stanchion guard" you dramatically increase your chances of gouging your stanchions, due to abrasives that invariably migrate between the lizardskin and the stanchions as the shock cycles.

Very true, never though about that. But do you agree, that running Lizard skins will prevent (to an extent) the chance of getting your stanchion dinged by a rock when say you get a little to close to a rack wall?

If there is a chance of your stanchions getting dinged by something protruding from a rock wall, I'd be a little more worried about my arms or legs!

I would only be concerned about that happening if my handlebar width, hip width and shoulder width was the same width as my fork.

Really, you're being paranoid about a rock wall to the extent that you're almost guaranteeing that you'll damage your stanchions.

Need another opinion about lizardskins? Ask Fox what they think about running them on their forks.

Brap brap.


Since our dirtjumps are about a 25minute ride from my house I usually strap a shovel to this and bushwack my way out there.

Special mods include.

Custom front fascia (not shown)
Batman logo covering bad bondo job.
F-150 horn.
Stickers.
Ductaped stuff.
Hole cut in side so I can get a screwdriver in to adjust the idle.

+Umlauts. Save the money to get a pack of Phillies, a cream soda, and a spare tube to wrap your chain-side chainstay. Your stanchions will be fine, but scratched paint don't heal.
