    If people will only talk to you through FB, are they worth talking to?

    So who will start the "lfgss Foffa Review" thread, linking to this and the price fixing threads?

    So I take it that's you pussying out of doing it then?

    No idea what the headtube angle is, geo charts are non existent and I'd have no idea how to ensure it myself.

    My thinking was that the a2c would be similar between a long travel 26er for and a short travel 29er fork this keeping the bb height etc where it needs to be.

    29er fork, fat front wheel and reduce the travel?

    :-)

    Now there's a shout.

    My new mtb frame is supposed to be used with a 130mm - 150mm travel fork. I'm not finding many good cheap forks within those travel specs for 26" wheel,QR dropouts and straight 1 1/8" steerer. Could a shorter (120mm ish) travel 29er fork be fitted and used with a 26" wheel without upsetting the geometry of the frame?

    I've requested a return on the grounds they are not as described. Will see where it goes. Ebay will intervene if not resolved by the 9th. If I want to ride next week then I guess I'm going to have to buy another fork and take the risk that I'll get my money back on these.

    Me again...

    Fork I bought on ebay described as,

    "Good condition. Not been used much, have been in dry storage for a while. Work fine, very slight stanction wear (pictured) - is not affecting performance, no leaks.All carbon parts intact very few signs of wear."

    ...actually has pretty deep grooves worn on the left hand leg and after a <2hr ride today have lost +/-30psi from that leg since last night and are pissing green oil from the other (damping and lockout) leg. I've not ridden a suspension fork in several years so fork felt alright to me but a riding buddy who has took a shot and said the fork felt buggerfucked.

    Is best practise to message the seller with my issues and see what they suggest or do I just go straight in with an 'item not as described' claim ?

    Edit: I had to an item not received claim as they didnt turn up when they should have but turned out Parcel Force Farce had left them at the post office but hadn't bothered informing me. When I got the forks I fitted them, took them for a spin round the block where I noticed the legs being quite oily. I closed the not received case and mentioned the oil on the legs, seller never responded.

    Why not do both?

    I've a feeling the order would be important.
