I am going to buy a marzocchi fork (mx series with the removable brake bosses), and i was wondering, do the v brake bosses come with them, or do i order them seperate.

The brake bosses come with a fork or frame as they are somewhat specific to that frame or fork.

Are you sure about that? I've used the brake posts from my 1996 Girvin Crosslink fork on other forks. I think that brake posts are pretty standard.

Yes, your MX Comp or MX pro will come with v brake bosses.

In reply to my own stupid remark - you are correct Mr. Gearhead. After researching this issue I found that yes, they should come with the bosses and yes they are specific to the fork. I guess I have just been lucky when using the ones from my Girvin on other forks.

Sorry I ever doubted you. ;)

That is why I tossed in the somewhat, there is some overlap.
