Boxxer WC S4 Tune

$900 USD
For sale is a 2013 Boxxer WC custom tuned by S4 Suspension Here is the back story on this fork... This fork came installed on my 2013 Giant Glory. I used it on the bike from April to June. In June I had the fork rebuilt by S4 Suspension when I was racing at Windham. I put 3 runs on the fresh build then I crashed in practice and dislocated my thumb. I was out for 10 weeks and ended up selling the Glory with a different fork (assuming I would use this fork in 2014). I ended up buying a Dorado this season...and dislocated my knee in May so I never ended up using this Boxxer after my crash at Windham in 2013. So to sum up...this is a nearly flawless 2013 Boxxer WC with a fresh custom build by S4 with only 3 runs (not rides) at Windham since the rebuild. There are no scratches on the stanchion tubes. The only major scratch is shown in the photos...it is aesthetic only. The S4 build included after market low friction seals, downhill specific splash oil, and S4 charged the compression/ rebound side of the fork with negative air. Basically this improves the forks small bump compliance by overcoming what little friction is generated by the fork seals. Compared to how this fork felt stock, the S4 build is a noticeable improvement. If you are interested in this fork PM me. I will sell/ ship within the continental US only.

It was honestly the craziest most random thing...came out of nowhere. I was at the Spring Classic up at Mountain Creek and I lost it in the rock garden at the very top...the one right underneath the ski lift off to the left there. My bike just kicked out sideways coming off that rock drop at the entrance and when I landed it was enough to unclip my right leg out of the pedal. I couldn't get away from the bike because my left foot was still clipped in and I landed with the bike upright and rolling. My right knee got caught in front of the pedal and the bottom half of my leg got sucked down into the rocks. I was going like "mach 10" when the bike was dragging me through the rocks so the first rock I hit with my knee...just totally pulled it apart with the pedal acting like the fulcrum. I felt it go...then the bike dragged me for about another 10 ft. through the rocks. It sucked. This all happened on my race run to...with all the spectators there and everything.

I did need surgery...I had to have an ACL graft from a cadaver bolted into place, the MCL needed to be bolted back into place, and the meniscus was torn and flipped so it needed to be relocated and stitched back together. At the end of the day my surgeon expects a full recovery with range of motion within 2° of the good leg. Only problem is...he says it will take 9-12 months to get there (based on my recovery to this point I am thinking 9...maybe riding bike paths in 6).

Yeah luckily I was okay. It's a wild story for sure. I guess there was a 30% chance I could have lost the leg and a near 50% chance I could have had nerve damage affecting the function of my foot (drop foot). From what I was told the amount of displacement that needs to occur to dislocate your actual knee usually causes damage to the femoral artery or a the least the nerves that control the lower half of your leg and foot. So I was lucky to just have the knee dislocate and that's it.

Clipless are good but they can make it harder to get away from the bike if things go wrong...then this happens... www.pinkbike.com/photo/11111710/ Don't get me wrong I'll probably still use em for DH racing because the benefits are huge but this injury will always be in the back of my mind...
