    Admittedly, when I first read about the luftkappe, just after the release of the mrp jigamahickey, the quoted, expected price point was around the 500USD mark.

    But yeah, what he said. 400AUD set of pikes and some free bungamakaps, and just swap over them as need dictates.

    However, from what I can recall, it does the same thing as the jigamahickey or the bungamakaps, just backarsewards. Although being vorsprung, probably in a more refined manner.

    Yep..... you are right. I blame Knuckles and his inability to research before typing for all the confusion.

    Yes, or US$210 with a full retune of the fork.

    Yeah I read that but I'm not planning of sending my fork to Canada anytime soon unless I accompany it.
