But then you'd be sans bike?
I shouldn't have ridden there anyways.
Was washing the front out with the clogged tires so the rear clearance was the least of my issues.

I meant happy to send first so you can swap 'em over then send yours up - to prevent you being sans bike.
My riding is limited to one shortie a week at best. If I sent 'em down tomorrow yours could make it up pre-weekend with any luck.

Set it to that then adjust your air pressure and it should work for the majority of riders.
Just a tweak for personal preference :thumbsup:


I had a good perv at one of these shocks when I was in the bike shop yesterday (two broken nipples on my front wheel). They are quite a solid unit, and the air can is very large compared to my Monarch Plus (pre debonair).

Ooh, is that new? I'd heard / read people were making their own, but it sounded a bit of a faff.


So is that this unit?

Wideopen - Marzocchi


It's not that part, that's a 20mm one, but last time I looked in the workshop we had some 10mm ones, maybe be your lbs to give wide open a call?

So I asked my LBS to order this magical spacer, and received this a couple of days ago.
I suspect it's actually the same as the one in my fork, not a 10mm. Can PBR or anyone else confirm before I trundle back down the road or open my fork?

Cheers, thought so.

Back down the LBS I go, hopefully there's still some in the Wide Open workshop.

Accidentally #3 to the stable on the way home from Rotorua Gravity Park today.

Asked the boss what she thought (at the shop) and she said 'purple' - so I absolutely took that as a 'yes' :D

Got the dispatch notice for my new ride today. Should hopefully be here in the next day or so. Got me a sweet cruiser to get back riding after a long time out of the saddle.

Yup there's a couple there today, for context here's a pic of a 10mm and a 20mm spacer side by side

Sweet, I dropped it back to the LBS a few days ago, fingers crossed.
