I've ordered a set of brand new marzocchi 55 ata-2, but I have to wait for them to come back into stock.
so I'm distracting myself from the wait by buying other stuff :D

Does anyone know if you get a shock pump with the forks, and if not, can anyone recommend a decent one.

(sorry Supersonic, I will buy rockshox for my hardtail project at some point - but I broke my Jr Ts!)

    I think if you get an after market boxed set, they come with a pump. Many of the deals you see are OE forks, and don't have the pump.

    Its a low pressure system sytem isnt it? Best to get a pump with a guage that covers the lower pressures (high pressure pump guages are innacurate at lower pressures).

    I'm pretty sure they're an after market set. they're from wiggle, here
    except I got them for £319.99, their 30% off offer stopped the day after I ordered!

    No pump just an adaptor.

    thanks nick. You wouldn't know if that's an aftermarket or OE fork would you? it sure looks like an aftermarket one to me, but until recently, I didn't know there was a difference.

    any give-aways?
