For sale is my orange 324 frame. I bought this new, and used for a while till it cracked in the normal place (bottom of the bridge between bearings on rear swing arm) Returned to orange for repair, but they were totally unhelpful, even more so when frame was hardness tested (to find out why it cracked, i paid for this to be done) and it failed showing to have never been correctly heat treated. So it now has been repaired by an aluminium specialist, heat treated by an aluminium specialist (alloy heat treatment, dudley) and retested. Now passed hardness tests so is stronger then when it left orange. Both front and rear sections have been treated. Only used handful of times since repair work. Time for it to move on and be used. See photos of welds for repair work. Very neat and done to better standard then orange do. Paint has been stripped so ready for either polishing, painting or ride how is (what I did) Close offers considered. No warranty implied or given. It is a used frame!

Pinkbike Poll: Which Alternative Suspension Manufacturer Has the Best Chance of Challenging RockShox and Fox's OE Dominance?
@southoftheborder: that'll be because a triair is actually a monarch plus with debonair.

Video: Jordi Explains How Volume Spacers Function & How to Set Them Up in the Latest 'Dialed' Episode
@clink83: some float x2's and dps/dpx2 have factory fitted negative volume spacers, but they don't give any info on those. Normally on bikes that have a lower overall ratio (yt is a common one). Negative volume reduction decresses its affect over the first 3rd of the stroke making it feel more supportive while making it possible to use lower air pressure. Think of an air spring with positive and negative springs balancing (net 0 force on piston) move it one way and positive side increases and negative side decreases creating the spring rate. If you make the negative side smaller the rate at which it decreases pressure is faster making the net spring rate firmer quicker. (I.e. supportive) at cost of small bump few mm into travel. Also that topaz (and suntour triair) are basically a monarch plus. Some minor internal changes. (Beside external aethetic)

Up for sale is my Marzocchi 380 R2C2 TI, I have had these from new and time to move on. Had a service before its last ride with the more expensive SKF seals. So will be fresh inside. No scratches or chips ect on stanchions. Has the 7.7 n/mm (x-firm) titanium spring installed. Which is good for 13/14 stone riders. All the titanium hardware and weight reduction done to this fork makes it one of the lightest coil dh forks ever built. Greatly adjustable fork with high and low speed compression and rebound. Along with a special mid valve to give additional support, done in a more effective way then other manufacturers. One of the last great forks from marzocchi before fox rebranding with second tier products. Collection preferred, postage and paypal available.

Bike Check: Bernard Kerr's Pivot Phoenix 29 Carbon - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
"Fork: Fox 49; 81.5psi; 6 tokens, 10 LSC, 21 HSC, 6LSR, 4HSR" Well that compression shimstack is wrong then. High speed is going to be harsh and horrid, and disgustingly digressive. Can easily be improved.
