Well after much thought and consideration, I decided that the Fox 36 RC2 was for me. I slapped it on this morning, and put 12 miles on it this afternoon. I will give my ride impressions after this weekend, when I have a good 50 miles on it. For now, here are some pics.

I actually like the look of my 04 Z-1 better, because it was all black, but so far, the Fox feels great. I'm still tinkering with air pressure, and high speed compression adjustments.

yeah, the Z-1 is a hard fork to beat but at least you replaced it with a fork that has a good chance to beat it out in terms of all around weight/adjustability/strength ratios.

LOL! Well, Shiver, the way I read it, he will only do 38 miles this weekend with the end result being a total of 50 miles on the fork. 38 miles?...heck, even an old man like me can do 38 miles in a weekend, even on my Bullit with a Monster T...LOL! I may be doing it this weekend in Moab in fact. Me thinks ye bin slogging the grog too much from down in that thar cask below decks. If the captain grubs yur wurthliss hide whilst yur snackered, it'll be the keel hall fer ye and davy jones' locker when it's done. Arrr...get yer modernfangled calcoolator if'in ye canst add. :D

I just got back from putting another 10 miles on it over at the Rockville Bench. Good thing this fork rides better than it looks!

Sounds like you are digging it. Too many beans for my wallet, so I will probably be opting for a Pike.

I really like the way the 5th feels on my Free right now, so it will stay. As for the Heckler, She'll be sold as soon as my new Nomad shows up, so no upgrades for it. I'm still trying to get an answer right now on whether I can get my Nomad with a DHX Coil over. That would be my preference over an air shock. I'm off to ride the Barrels. Look for my review of the 36 on Monday! Have a great weekend!
