    Will Rockshox shock hardware kit fit a Fox X2?

    why are Mojo selling the forks and shocks off cheap?
    I can’t see they they need to do that

    Not really, Fox always try to position themselves above RS in terms of being a more ‘premium’ product

    They will but they will also be trying to trim margins and make sure they don’t miss sales.
    Though the real point is people want stuff cheaper, and hunt all around for it, manufacturers are looking for ways to deliver and hold market share.

    I wonder if Windwave (Marzocchi) might end up the new Fox people?

    That’s the bit that baffled me as well albeit I know nothing about retail agreements. You’d have thought they would just hold the current stock unless they a) can’t afford to or b) they’re not doing Fox at all, bar servicing, going forward. Must be something off as I can’t see Fox being delighted with them knocking 2018 stuff out at cost.

    See my post at the top, do you think they give a toss?
    They have funds tied up in something, they need to liquidate that to get their cash back.

    Could just be cashflow, they might need to buy in new stock for whoever they replace Fox with, tools for servicing other forks, etc.

    Or it might be a plain and simple FU to Fox and the new distributor (or put other people off bidding to be the distributor), mop up all the potential sales for the next few months.

    Well there will be zero B2B sales when the new distributor gets in so I’d guess they carry decent inventory that just lost a huge market.

    Or it’ll go to all Fox sales being through [fox in house probably] new distributor with no online sales and what mojo don’t sell now they know they can’t in x months.

    Edit: that made more sense in my head. My guess though is it’ll go direct sales and OE only.

    But they could do that and benefit by knocking Factory 34s out at 600 quid rather than 470. Which is why I wonder if it is more of a

    Or it might be a plain and simple FU to Fox and the new distributor

    given Chris Porter’s rep for ‘straight talking’. But then it could also be

    new distributor with no online sales and what mojo don’t sell now they know they can’t in x months.

    which is why they just want shot of the stock and instead of returning to the new distributor they’ve gone for point two above.

    Does anyone know if Float 34 29ers can be lowered from 140 to 120mm?

    Singletrack now seem to have picked up on this story.
    Proof that somebody there reads the forums. ๐Ÿ™‚

    been quite a few times lately that there’s been an item of interest/PSA on the forums that some bod has recycled to put a headline on the front page. Nice to see that the rabble on here are useful fro more than just adclicks ๐Ÿ˜†

    yes but you need a new air shaft which I am sure you could get from the likes of TF Tuned.

    Well, these will take a 4″ tyre so it would have been rude not to: https://www.mojo-store.co.uk/275-c102x3270595

    returning to the new distributor

    Zero knowledge but I do wonder if at their point in the chain it’s more an auto industry type model where they commit to sell x number up front and they have no real option to return them, what stock they have is their problem.

    That said (as mentioned) given Chris porter’s rep, I’d be unsurprised to discover this largely came about out of a “we need more market share, you can’t sell them at that [high] price, reduce your margin” conversation with fox and is as much a screw you…

    …Only one way to find out, someone order a geometron and see if they’re still specifying fox.

    It was Barney who tipped me off to this thread, and I’ve given appropriate credit to Earl now ๐Ÿ˜€

    We’re trying to find out more directly from Mojo.

    Cheers for that just bought myself a Transfer dropper and lever.
    Shame about them, always had good service.
    If they sold a dhx2 coil in 216×63 I would be in trouble..

    Well, try as I might, they have nothing I want that will fit my bikes ๐Ÿ™

    I wonder if Silverfish will lose Raceface/Easton, Windwave lose Marzocchi. Then Fox set up their own distribution for all their brands? Or has Chris Porter ruined it for himself? He does come across as highly opinionated, maybe he’s rubbed someone up the wrong way?

    What do all the little bits of the fork name mean!?

    year..sz. ?…travel…??.. colour…. hub ??
    2018 34 A 140 Grip Blk .. 15QRx100 1.5T

    Specifically Grip… 1.5 taper is 1.5T (thought that too obvious!)

    My XC bike was just telling me the other day that what it really needed was a bright orange step cast fork.
    I told it to keep dreaming cos it was too expensive, but now I seem to have lost my excuse.

    tempted with a dropper post but where does all this leave warranty’s ?

    Couldn’t resist a transfer post and 1x at that price!

    Hope mojo are ok.

    Tempted to return for some forks I can’t afford!

    Specifically Grip and 1.5T

    Grip is the damper tune – ‘less good than Fit4’ but not sure what that means in practive

    1.5T – 1.5″ tapered – the steerer.

    Sort of glad they dont have anything of 140mm/27.5in flavour left, or i’d have done something stupid.

    Anyway i’ve only ever had excellent service from mojo, including carrying out work free of charge when they were under no obligation to do so. Hope they’re doing ok.

    Pretty sure I answered it when originally asked! Yes, but you need a new airshaft.

    IIRC it’s literally only the shaft coating that’s different on the performance model.

    only the shaft coating that’s different on the performance model

    Probably in the lineup only to match the fork stanchions / shocks.

    this is interesting..

    I’ve blown the damping in my rear fox float and was on the hunt for a new replacement. Yesterday Mojo’s website was showing nothing available, TF tuned was showing as available to order. Spoke to TF this morning who said there seemed to be at least a 6 week delay for the 2018 stuff coming in. Good luck to those at Mojo. I hope there’s no job losses…..
