Oh yeah Enduro makes the wipers or you can still get the OEM and the inside orings and seals can be purchase from industrial suppyers or Ethan the guy that still tunes the Mavericks..

So far the 3 forks I have are trouble free, I really like the design and riding quality, specially from the dual triple crown like the one on the new bike..

Who will dear to blast such a pretty paintjob...??

What is sad the hear, from looking at them, they appear to be really well made

hi Ricky!

i wasn't putting down Darios paint; i think it looks like he has a lot of fun with his paint, and i really like some of it.

what i didn't like was seeing how some of what looked like long-point lugs on a frame i was looking at were really just much more standard lugs with long lug tips added for purely cosmetic purposes; seemed like cheating to me.

i hope things are going well for you there; we miss you here!


cheers!

I would say it's close to the same vintage, too. Although I bet mine preceades it by a couple years. Ahead of it's time?

But having just gone through a testing ordeal getting the shifting dialed back in on my MTB after the son flipped it. And I may be a bit over reactionary here, but I cringe at the sight of that bike resting on the rear derailleur.
