Britain to Remove Tariffs on Non-EU Bicycles in Event of No-Deal Brexit
Yeah well you should have waited to have your referendum shouldn't you? You voted to stay with the UK, and act as one. More people in the UK wanted to leave, so you'll have to stop whinging, the Scottish people and government really aren't endearing themselves to the rest of the country you know, most English people I know want a referendum on whether to kick he Scottish scroungers out or not.

So how long is it? Mudhugger front race is 450mm and looks a lot less janky than this.

Review: Marzocchi's New Bomber Z2 Fork is Impressive & Affordable
@ORTOGONAL555: dude, it's cool, it's just you keep saying the same 'it's a cheaper fox' line, which I've stayed why I don't think it is, and I've stated why I think it's a true marzocchi. You didn't come with any counter arguments, you just stated the same line over and over. Last time: it's not a cheaper fox. It's a marzocchi, even though fox own marzocchi. They went away, designed a fork, and (smartly) decided to use their parent companies bushings, seals and air spring. That does not make it a fox. You said a few times 'the op said true marzocchi' what is a true marzocchi to you? You've still not clarified.

@ORTOGONAL555: right I'm pretty sure you're either trolling or stupid? How many times, just because fox own marzocchi, and they use a few parts from their parent company, doesn't mean it's a fox. And yes I know the op said proper marzocchi, I'm stating it is a proper marzo, how is it not? You've still not answered that, your just regurgitating the same 'it's a cheap fox' line over and over. Either come back with something of substance or accept you're wrong.

@ORTOGONAL555: it's a proper marzocchi in the fact it's simpler, cheaper, more reliable, plush as shit and it's got the m brace. What even is a 'proper' marzocchi in your opinion if its not what I've just stated? Made in Italy? If so you're 10 years late.

Review: Marzocchi's New Bomber Z2 Fork is Impressive & Affordable
@SonofBovril: was marzocchi really anything else though? Yes the last forks they made did compete, the 380 was pretty damn good, and in their heyday the legions of devout freeriders swore by the bomber ethos, but the only reason anyone I know would ever consider it over fox or rs was price, marzo units have always been cheaper for the equivalent item. Not saying its a bad thing at all, there's a lot to be said for solid mid level components that work well for years, I've spent most of my riding life on that exact category of parts, but writing it off as a budget fox is doing it a disservice, the semi open bath damper should be better for riders who don't regularly get stuff serviced, the stouter chassis should be more durable etc. If all that is because its more budget oriented then it's great it's being kept cheaper, why do we need another company competing with fox and rs? There's already cane creek, mrp, dt Swiss, dvo, formula and others that sell forks claiming to be the same level of performance, and others like trust and intend offering uniqueness for a high price, there's only really been manitou with the circus and mattock that have truly made a dent at a more budget focused level.

@ORTOGONAL555: so different lowers, axle, uppers, damper and name is the same fork? Again, air spring, bushings and seals being shared doesn't make it the same fork. If it was like the z1 then fair enough, that was a cheaper 36 with a different lower casting, that I'll agree its the same fork, but when this has a completely different structure and damper (meaning it'll feel completely different) it's really not the same.

Yes it would, just like we used to 10 years ago when anything but 160pm forks were rare (fox 40 was main exception, that's been 203 for as long as I remember)
