drove past a mercedes w/ a bontrager up top sporting a black fox susp fork... RLC i think (just got a quick glance w/o causing an accident)...

i know about the old marzocchi and manitou options in 1", but didn't realize fox had something too (assuming threadless).

can someone clue me in on the details (specific year(s) only)?

thanks in advance.

I've not heard of fox making 1" forks, but that bonty was likely a Privateer w/ 1 1/8" headset (these were the last year the privateer was made- 98 or 99).

what color was the frame? yellow white and red? orange white and blue? or red yellow and green (rasta)? I bet it was one of these color combos. those would be privateers with a 1 1/8th headtube with stock paintjobs of course.

I've inquired through Fox and they had no interest in small runs of 1" forks. I would shell out some money for that.
