Fancy getting these, does anyone have them, looking for a user opinion before I splash out my hard earned cash.

    save money and get 409, same but you the floodgate is under a small cap rather than with an external dial.

    Out of interest why not u-turn?

    U-Turn, No need for it - Played with it on a bike at work, i feel it's more of a novelty for me. I'm sure the forks are slightly heavier too... I'd play about with the ride height then leave it, not bothering to adjust it when i'm out on the trails.

    seen the revelation 426 dual air at a really good price - same as the 409 in fact.

    Fair enough, what would you be running them at.

    well my current forks are my trusty old timers - Marzocchi Z1 Bams, from 1998! they are 100mm so will check out what suits my GT avalanche frame, Prob 120 ish to start with. From what I can gather the 426 is adjustable from 115 - 130 in dual air format (I think) :lol:

    Same As I said above- i'll play about with the ride height (and sag) then leave it alone.

    Was tempted to buy the 2008 Z1's but they have a bolt through axle, same bomber orange as mine too.

    It is an internal jobbie, requires a strip and service. For a gt avalanche just put some reba SL on it. Fantastic...
