I discovered that my Ride-9 chip was moving when I lifted the bike by the seat. Then, after digging, I noticed some play with the bolt and lower shock bearings. This is on a 2018 Instinct A50.

Marzocchi is definitely back. I'm loving the forks.
stumbled upon this one:
the frame says rocky mountain vertex to but it sure does not look like a rocky vertex to me!
the paint job looks like 1998 but I ran through all mountainbike mags from 1994 till 1998 and did not find this frame setup from rocky mountain. Could this be a 1993...
