Are we still talking about a fork. :)

I haven't heard a lot of feed back about the 6000. Nils says his has been great. I heard(from a reliable source) that a gentleman woke up in the hopital when a stear tube detached from the fork crown (not becase of impact), "out of the blue", so-to-speak.

I actually got one then returned it because the dimentions were pretty different than my current one.

I am still interested in getting one, but can't get my self to do it. YOu know.

Any other people have one?

Unless you'd want to use it on a record weight bike that's not going to be ridden I'd go with the THM Scapula (SP) fork instead.

I guess the safest thing to do is give it more time and therefore more people will have the chance to ride them etc...

They need to be "veted". :)
