+20mm you should be able to get away with. Ride wise you're weight will be a tiny bit further back so will make hopping/manuals a bit easier, your front could be more likely to wash out in corners though. Really depends on the rest of your setup though and how you ride. All in all i don't think it will make a massive difference. I'd go for it.
Before starting, your fork looks pretty nice. Are you sure you can't send it to FOX and rebuild it? Why do you say it is ruined? About the fork size, please check the cube FAQ: CAN I INSTALL FORKS WITH MORE TRAVEL AS PROVIDED IN THE STANDARD EQUIPMENT? NO. The installation of a fork with more travel will void the warranty. The bike geometry will be ...
I'd add: Pro: probably less width overall, good for extreme mountain/trail biking Con: center of balance is shifted off center line of tire.
The single-legged fork must truly withstand heavier bending forces than conventional forks, simply due to physics and asymmetricity. But because of it's different construction, the fork is actually stiffer than most 2-legged. Pros The top is attached like a dual crown downhill fork, which is much stiffer than a single-crown. The wheel axle is one-piece ...
Mine don't click. I have a red twisty on the bottom of right leg. The settings on mine only seem to take effect around the full mark. I back it off from full to suite.
If the problem occurred in a crash and the wheel was still in the dropouts as opposed to something hitting the bike while it was in a garage with no wheel on, then almost certainly there was a problem with both sides of the fork. Most likely there are issues of misalignment not only in the front to back axis but there will most likely be some twisting ...
If you like these things you can rebuild the suspension. You have detailed, easy to follow instructions from Rock Shox here and you can buy a rebuild kit also from Rock Shox, here (please confirm these two match your suspension). You won't spend too much on tools (some you can borrow maybe?), or at least you won't spend much more than your local shop will ...
It's likely suspension oil is getting outside of the seal. It could be a number of issues: failed seal scratched stanchion too much oil after service I'd run them past your LBS for an opinion on what the cause may be. If it's a scratched stanchion I'd ask for a refund. Otherwise I'd lean towards sending them back also unless they were so cheap that ...
Yes you can, but you need adaptors such as these. Edit: To the best of my knowledge, all Marzocchi v brake adaptors are the same, but you might want to ask the eBay vendor just to be on the safe side :)
Increasing positive chamber pressure would reduce bottom-outs, but at the expense of reduced "up" travel. Increasing compression damping will also reduce bottom-outs but without reducing "up" travel. This would have the negative effect of reducing the shock's compliance which will make the ride harsher, so it's a balancing act where the goal is to optimize ...
