Hey everyone,

Bought this as my ultimate enduro fork for my evil insurgent for 1400$ in late 2016. Was top of the Bos heirarchy when I bought it with the first enduro focused generation of the fcv system used on their high end race forks. When I bought it from Bos they told me it was 1 of 4 in the country at the time so you aren't likely to see another one. I've only seen the version without the FCV on the occasional YT. Rode it for about half a season before putting it back in its box and buying a boxxer in order to convert the bike into a mini-dh setup. Probably between 30 and 40 total hours of ride-time and the service interval is much much higher than that. Will include the (unopened) factory service kit which includes new seals and bushings and the (unopened) factory oil bottle so you can do a complete overhaul when you want to. Will also include all the factory instruction manuals if I can find them. Fork worked amazing when it was on the bike, selling only because i wanted to go up in fork travel to balance the geometry with the trails I like to ride. The standard "bought this because i wanted to pedal, ended up hating to pedal, made the bike into a dh bike and went back to shuttling" story. Fork has open bath damping compared to sealed damper setups you see with fox and rockshox which typically results in better sensitivity and durability once its dialed in for your weight. I definitely needed some time to tune it in though, finding the perfect setup is a little more involved but is much more rewarding when you get it right. The range of tuning is a lot broader than on the mass produced forks and it (apparently) responds better to tuning through changing the oil weight. Plus - now that QBP is a bos distributor, any local shop will easily be able to order parts if something goes wrong which is a big upgrade from dealing with bos in France. Definitely a racing focused fork overall - it does a better job at keeping the front tire on the ground than my 2018 boxxer world cup, I just wish they made it in a 180mm version.

Stanchions are in 10/10 condition with no nicks.
Lowers are in 9.5/10 condition with only minor scuffs from where i had my fender zip-tied.
Happy to take further pics if desired.

Let me know if you have any questions!
