    Used to be R.53, but there seemed to be some sort of falling out with BOS?
    Either buy direct or go to Mad Elk in Dublin?

    For such a good reputation you’d think there would be a distributor in the UK.

    Thanks.

    Free Flow Bikes in Scotland will deliver free and give great service. Good prices as well as normally give 10% off. Just got some Devilles, a Vip’r and new 20mm axle for ck front hub for £1200.

    They are really good forks when they work but my LBS has had more than his fair share of problems with the ones he has sold and its been taking Bos ages to sort them out. Shame because I really like them.

    They’re a French company. What do you expect?

    From what I was told by R53 Bos were trying to renegotiate contracts after they had been agreed. They were making such ridiculous demands in how much stock they had to keep, how much in spares, commitments to turnaround etc that it was never going to be remotely profitable to agree to the terms. I remember saying that if Bos wanted R53 to agree to those terms then R53 should suggest to Bos that they acquire the company. You can’t expect that kind of commitment from a third party.

    Not sure I’d want a pair of bos forks, you can source all the spares for Rock Shox forks on the net very quickly so that if they die on you just before you go to the Alps your not going to have to rent a bike or cancel your trip.
