    Move to Alaska, it's like 40 degrees, raining, and what little snow we have is running into the ocean.
    Do you even race bro?

    The new 2013 stuff is going to be good. Cant wait. Little differences from the factory that are exceeding expectations.

    so, anyone that gives a ****.. I now have an x-firm spring, have the preload 2 clicks in from nothing, same on the compression, rebound is 3 clicks from full, and dropped my oil level in the spring side from 200ml to 100ml.. wow. Such a better ride compared to running the standard spring and trying to compensate. I got the steel spring, don't care about the weight, and it is a little stiffer initially but soo much better ramping up, especially into the last third of the travel. I'm 200lbs and the x firm is great. Really glad I did it!!

    the 888 RC3 EVO V2 (left) gets a minor upgrade internally for 2013. Based on rider feedback from their World Cup racers, they adjusted the shim stack to help keep the fork higher in its travel over high speed chatter.

    this is relevant to my interests! Does anyone have a 2013-evo model already or knows of a review? Would be cool to know about these new shimz!

    Put one on my new 2013 Norco Aurum build back in November.

    I've only had 3 days at Highland on it before they closed, and a couple of local shuttle days. But for the price I paid, the fork is awesome.

    Once I got a heavier spring for it, it felt much better. Soft and plush in the initial travel, but not too soft or divey. Soaks up bumps pretty well, and not once have I felt like I was running a budget fork.

    I'm running maybe 1 click of preload, with 1-2 clicks of compression. Rebound and compression don't have a ton of clicks of adjustment, but having said that, what adjustment there is, there's a fairly noticeable difference in each click.

    That's great to hear. I debated about a new fork for too long, but I heard so much good about the CR, and it sounds like zokes may go that way with all their dampers in 2014?

    Can anybody tell me whether their aftermarket fork came with coils or not? I just got my 888 cr and there were no extra coils in the box. I had hoped there would be a heavy spring in there.... anybody have a spare firm spring?

    what does the box usually contain? i got stickers and a warning label, no user manual or extra coil springs, just the one installed. The rebound knob is also broken, so I have to call anyways.

    its suppose to come with springs iirc and a (useless) generic fork manual...maybe the CR's dont come with them?
    the rebound adjustment is on the bottom right? ive heard of a few people with broken compression (on the Evo) knobs since they are on the bottom when bought new

    Yeah, the CR has rebound on the bottom on the brake side leg. I'm guessing they just don't come with extra coils as a way to save cash. I can't explain stickers in the box but no coils. I'll see if I can get a replacement knob, kind of disappointed to see it cracked out of the box.
