Well,I`ve decided to say f**k it and try something new.I`ve been a dedicated Marzocchi and Shimano man since I started riding.Never had any problems,but now I think I may just try the Manitou Travis DC.I know I have to wait till August,so my Demo9 build up project is put on haitus unless my LBS can get an OEM one(they are one of the leading Manitou dealers in Cali and are trying to do it for me).I also decided to slide away from Shimano and go for the 2006 SRAM X.0 derailleur and trigger shifter(not out till this summer).I know that I should stick with the proven stuff for me,but as they say,variety is the spice of life.I hope the crossover will be good.I`ve heard good things about SRAM,and nobody knows sh!t about the Travis,but f**k it,I`m going for it.So for now I`ll just happily pedal along on my Stinky with Shivers.And I know some of you guys will ask what the f**k is the point of all this.I say to you:nothing.I have no life.I`m bored right now and too drunk to go for a night ride by the beach so f**k it.Thanx for putting up with my nonsense.

yeah baby!!! what beer you drinking....The Sram rules. I love it way better than my XTR(I have the X9 and X9 shifter)

I would never leave Marzocchi...they have always did me right. Love the Shiver.

In Shivers We Trust

I agree with SMT, I would not cheat on Marzocchi. I had a Manitou once--and only once!
I lived through the horror yes HORROR of my friends constantly breaking and add that to his girlfriend who wants him to go to bridal showers and shopping...the poor kid almost never rides
