 thats a bit stupid, hes made that frame so it can be single speeded, but he runs gears on it?

 personal preference jack ass.

 yea, im guessing maybe on his run ups or hes sessions single sped wouldnt let him go fast enough.

 haha i dont care if he runs gears but i do find it funny that the bike is named after him and all the team riders that use it run it singlespeed and he runs gear,but as long as the gears dont make it to heavy it doesnt make much of a difernce.

 he probably chages over from ss to gears. lots of riders do taht, depending on what coarse they are riding

 this may be a nooby question
but what is the point in buying long travel forks (that probably cost more than short travel)
then reduce the travel that they give?


neg props x 100

 i wouldnt call it long travel, and its the ata( air travel adjust) version. so yea it can be lowered depending on jumps and drops ur riding and what not

 HAHAHA p-2rider. You rip on shreder for calling it the wrong name when you did too! If you really want to give someone bs, YOU should call it the right name. It's a ROCO. Not a Rocco.

 yeah p2 rider
he sorta did us e the correct name (well term)
it is a marzocchi air shock

 well spongo. they are pro riders.. theyre like kings and queens of the biking world. they can have or get whatever they want..haha and just a couple of months ago i went to the marzocchi distributor to fix my fork and my friend asked a question to one of the guys: why andreu lacondeguy uses a 55? and the dude said its basically not even a 55, its totally custom internally and its lighter than a 66, obviously.. so i guess theres your answer. but i guess for the people who buy forks with travel adjusters for DJ and such, they probably use it as extra insurance in case they need to go to a local jump thats in the middle of no where so they can just use that travel adjuster to have an epic ride to their sweet ass jumps.

 Thank you for your informative, well typed, not retarded response. I am fully aware of what the bike I have is intended for. I was only drawing a comparison that it has the same paint, shock, and was ridden by John Cowan
