More good suspension stuff here..
For some reason I couldnt  find a link to it on the GPZlist web page..

On another subject
Mounted a new front tire today and though it's a big improvement there is 
still some something not quite right. Still some patter on the front. I had 
the wheel off and tire changed in 30 mins but took another hour to balance 
The wheel bearings only have 35,000 miles on them so they should be good. 
Couldn't feel any slop anyway.
May have to get another front wheel and try that.
What are the symptoms of worn fork bushings? Any other ideas.
