Who cares if the fork dosn't look that great, its how the fork performs that matters. You don't ride down a super steep trail at high speed and stare down at your fork and go "damn thats an ugly fork." As long as it performs flawlessly I don't give a shit how it looks. Hot pink stantions would look pimper than red though.

romic boxxers r accually no better than a regular boxxer...

i read that the romic upgrade is just drilling out your repound to make it faster...

Do Boxxers really need to be any faster? Looks good, I just want some more solid info on this.

I dunno what the romic upgrade does, but you can drill out the
O-ring in the compression cartidge in a boxxer to make the oil flow better, and it's more sensitive to small bumps. ya really don't wanna drill the rebound. but about next years boxxer the world cup is truely pimp:thepimp: they will have slippery silver stantions, and with be flat bright silver, look wicked

thats not what the Romic internals are...

they are working on offering a SPV style internal for the boXXer similar to what their Romic shock does...

the porting trick was something one of the Romic team mehcanics figured out....

2 seperate things.....

Um.. you can't drill an O-Ring.. It's a rubber ring used as a seal. You are supposed to double the size of the compression oil cycle hole which takes the oil from the leg into the cartrage and then back out of the rebound cycle hole. Reason's for this was to prevent hydrolock and cavitiation.

Like IFO said, the internals are all made by Romic and will offer a form of SPV just like their rear shocks act. The stanctions are supposed to be lighter yet stiffer and the red is only to make it look cool, they said they found that by accident... (?) I also heard something about an air assisted preload/ progressiveness top cap.
