Sitting at 68” with ghost arm and forks.
Arm is coming, ( from Tony D)....question on the forks tho.

Anyone been inside these forks?
What does the assembly consist of?
How is the ride height adjusted?

Was going to put the forks on the bar bike but need to add a couple inches, would rather not put them on the wheelie machine but are pretty close to perfect length now. 24”.

I have same exact trac dynamic forks. Super simple construction! Mine were too short when I received them used. Just made some spacers, dropped them in and all good. Take the caps off, Allen in the bottom holding dampener and it’s completely disassembled. I think I went 1 1/4”-1 1/2” as much as I could possibly get because the frame was almost to the ground. Only negative is that they leak on me every year, even after new seals.

If you need seals Try trac, but I highly recommend sourcing elsewhere. He flat out lied to me about making a steering stem for me, makes promises and does not deliver, many others the same issues. Local machine shop made mine.

They are awesome forks though! Lite af

Can be a pita to get Allen out because dampener will spin FYI

Awesome info Ryan thanks! 😎

Ya TD, can’t understand how a business that makes such awesome products can survive making false promises.
