Thanks mate. Pretty risky buy if I don't know the year!

What's that marzocchi fork on your majesty by the way? Is it any good?

Yeah I believe it was 2012 when they changed the fork decals to the newer style (back then). 2013 is the year they went to the air spring design that couldn't be lowered to 100mm.

The fork on my Maj is a Marzocchi 55R......coil fork with air assist that I lowered to 100mm. From what I heard from a buddy that did it, you can even take the coil out and use it as an air fork.....I'm a coil fan myself. Anyway, I love it. I have two of them, the other one is on my Pride Street.

That's the one mate. I'm after a 2012 model 36 float. They come up really cheap in the UK and would love a set for my Absolut. Most ads never state the year they are though!! I might do a buy and chance it, could always sell them on.

After clicking through your pics, all your bikes are very nice!

Yes you can run them air only. I did the same with an R on my Babah way back in the day, great stiff fork for dirt and street if not for a bit heavy and harder to find cheap these days

Check out this interesting bike for sale here in CO...never seen anything like it myself. And before anyone slams me NO I am not the seller, just wanted to share.

I didn't know these tires are heavy but they are unbelievable on asphalt pump tracks, very good on street and skatepark and now I've been dirt jumping with them as well with great success. Plus I think they looks awesome. And before I was running holly rollers 2.4 The bashguard is there for when case shit lol. the mount is there might as well use it

Thanks for the answers man, I run DTHs in foldable version 2,15 width and they are like 540g for one, so super light, super fast on pumptracks and also rolls suepr fast on dirt jumps and street etc, even in the park i'm not losing any speed. My Dartmoor 26 PLayer 2015 also have ISCG 05 mount, might try a bashguard too, but I dont case often Big Grin
