    would anybody be interested? i ask because i might be having one made, if i could get more people interested and have more made, then they would be cheaper...anyways, sub 400mm, like 395mm, disc specific, sib 2lbs, STEEL, painted any color you want maybe. i am not sure if they will ever even be made, but its never too early to get people interested eh? also, what would you pay for that? mind you, it will not look like an ugly ass p-x fork, it will probably be clsoer to the zoo or echo forks... :? :ugh2:

    i might be in for one to hold me over until something that will dominate all forks now and forever comes to fruition.

    word, well i ahve never gone through the process before, so at least there will be guidance and all that..teehe.

    i am waiting for confirmation from "the man", but i will let anybody interested know the info ASAP. i want to get at least 4 or 5 people interested.

    ok, i just spoke to mike, and he said that it will take a week before he begins any designs, and then from there, a few prototypes will be made, and then hopefully they will be out... i said that he will talk to jeremy V about it, so if his prototype will last, i think it will be a good deal.
