Hey Gonzo - could you email me a photo of your X-5?

Also, what is your weight and what springs oil weight/height are you running in your Z1 - I've got one on my Belair now and I'm trying to get it dialed in.

Thanks!

Mark

Below is a picture from Tuesday's ride.

Z1 is (honestly!) still running original springs and original oil at whatever height Marz filled. I've got some Bel Ray 10wt waiting to go into it, but I'm too fargin' lazy to change the oil!

Also, I'm trying to decide what fork I'm really going to use... I need a 6" fork up there and want to wait to see all the options -- Fox 36, Marzocchi 66, Manitou Nixon, and, if the rumors are true, Manitou Sherman Firefly 6" with 1.125" steerer.
