LOL @ the real Rafter. Yeah, I know that 'lil secret. I am getting very close to doing it myself.
These are the new EBR hydraulic forks. sorry I didn't make that clear. I've got a cold and it's making me spacey as hell.
I think stiffer is better with these because they do soften up pretty quickly. The screw trick is good because it means you don't have to take those plastic screws on and off all the time (what a bad design).
