    I have a 4-5 yr old bike with the above front fork...... it's OK for light riding, but is past it's
    best now.....

    Looking to replace it with a Marzocchi 2003 MX Comp Air which is a 1.1/8" header (or is it
    steerer... never quite sure...)

    Does anybody know the dimensions of the Rock Shox..... is it a straight replacement or will this
    replacement not work for me

    Thanks in advance

    It's a Carerra Fury (Halfords UK).... either 98 or 99 (can't remember exactly)

    It probably has a 1 1/8" steerer tube. I also have an old indy (C, even worse) and it has about 3
    namometers of travel. You might first wanto to take a look at how that that Marzochi (80 or 100mm?)
    is going to affect your geometry.

    I take it you mean clearance at the front of the bike...... if the shock will lift the front of the
    bike higher off the ground.

    Aye - that's what he means alright. If your new fork is longer than the old one (from crown to axle
    mount), your steering will feel different - more sluggish to steer at lower speeds, but more stable
    at higher speeds (less twitchy). Look for something the same or very similar to your old fork if you
    don't desire this.

    Shaun aRe - but what do I know? Heheheheh ',;~}~
