Transferred forks across while i look for some fox 40's or similar double crown air forks

Sick! I love those TR450's!

Why an air fork though? Coil is way better \m/

Changed my mind, found a set of coil fox 40 fit rc2's locally (off a tr450 as well surprisingly). Old forks must have been stuffed as these feel 10x better also so many adjustments to tinker with. Can't wait till the weather improves and the local trails open.

Had a bit of a spending spree over the last 2 months getting the forks, mavic deemax wheel set, sram guide 's and fox transfer dropper post(daily it to work and needed the extra height).
