Some of their bikes suck too, they are just skilled enough to overcome the deficiancies and take advantage of the lighter weight. I'd never buy an Orange, despite it is a "winning" bike.

Besides, there's nothing wrong with pointing out that there is no improvement to the damping.

Nope, no improvement to the current damping, but since you haven't tried the current high-end damping, I guess the point is moot. :p

Your dog is drooling again, Pavlov.

((((((((((yawn))))))))))

Just see if you can let one, ONE Boxxer thread go by without comment.
It's tiresome, this 'public service' you seem to think you are performing.
When I retire my Boxxers one day and move on, it will still be tiresome, Jm.

how much you want to bet that he has a program running on his computer to alert him any time the word boxxer comes up so he can run off to bash them b/c he didn't like his 2003 race... :D

BTW Team turner in Orange County (Los Angeles) has all their Boxxer forks redone by Push Industries. They ripp everything out internally and rebuild those shitty, leaky, blown forks.

interesting, G. Atherson (#6 UCI/WC ranked DH) is on a stock 2003 (maybe 2004?) boxxer that he personally bought b/c he doesn't have a sponsorship. Guess he does pretty well on a shitty, leaky, blown fork... :rolleyes:

I also notice that Team Turner isn't racing on PUSHed 888s. :D

Personally, I really hate Boxxers period. They are cheap made in China 75 % plastic and do not offer and good sort of adjustments. Go with a real fork Dorado DH, these Rock Shock boxxer series needs a big over haul in design and need to have thier techs monkies learn how real oil dampening works. I raced my old 02 boxxer only because my 04 dorado's were in getting a tune up. Yes my 02 boxxer (Ruby red) rebuilt by me added shims replaced parts and works just as well as any world cup or even better.

I like to use my fork not work on them....That is why I ride Marzocchi,una bella maquina...
Yes, Marzocchi has a justified and very vocal Tifosi. I would rather hear someone say Mi Bella Marzocchi!, rather than Rock Shox Sux! any day. I'm not even a huge RS supporter, but the fact is, on my low budget, I have outfitted a ragtag group of Sport racers with 2002 (note the model year!) Boxxers that have been excellent all-around forks for epic TR and DH racing
for around $200 each (used of course). You can't beat that value -and they RARELY LEAK (?) This is why I stand up to the RS bashers...I love Marzocchi (and almost any Italian design) and I will have a used Dorado soon too. Blanket RS bashing is lame.

the same people who bash them are people who used older ones or the low-end race. The Team and WC have high and low-speed compression & rebound adjustments, and I haven't touched my fork all season. No leaking, no blown fork, is more supple *and* more bottom-resistant than my 2002 SuperT. It's just fun to watch some of these people foam at the mouth b/c their 2002 fork gave them problems or their 1999 leaked at the seals. :D
