Just got a pair of forks (49mm Showa twin chamber conventional). There is a sticker on it: Factory Effex. http://www.factoryeffex.com/ Seems like the company mainly does graphic work. There is no reason to think that they did any custom suspension tuning to the forks right? The sticker is a very nice high quality one. Thicker than any sticker I have seen, which lead me to think that it was affixed by a suspension tuner.
