you know, this is very strange. but why is it that everyone complains about the dropoff comp/triple. where as everyone raves about the 888VF and 66VF ? aren't they almost the exact same fork ? bolth share tuning similarity's bolth are open bath SSVF dampened. only difference between them I could find is the 888/66 is a little beffier. 35 mm stauntions VS 32 mm. and two bolts at the dropout instead of one. also the 66/888 has a little more travel.

for anyone out there with a dropoff comp/triple. you're basically riding a smaller 66VF/888VF am I correct ?

does anyone know if there actually are any differences that make the person think that the 888/66 is better? personally, I have more controlled rebound with my dropoff than I did with my 66.

discuss/rant :p I'm just wondering. was I just stupid to replace my dropoff comp with a 66VF {wich I no longer have} [and sorry, in the title I meant dropoff triple :p]

The lightest Drop Off is the 130mm travel Drop Off IV weighing in at a claimed 2278g WITHOUT a steerer. That is approximately 5.02lbs without a steerer. 5.2lbs without steerer is more realistic.

well cool I guess. I was going to buy a 888VF because you can get them very cheap, but you see drop off triple's selling for $100.00 or less. seeing as there is almost no difference, I'll just get a dropoff or something as backup. more likely a Jr T though if one can be had for cheap.

I have an '06 888 VF2. There is a night/day difference between it and a drop-off triple. By that I mean the feeling.
never tryed the VF2 but go try a 888VF then a dropoff. the dropoff's have a little better rebound.
