The Junior T and Super T models satisfy the demand for lighter weight long travel suspension that can still handle the big hits. Both models have 7” of stiction-free travel. As with all our 32mm forks, they can accommodate up to a 2.7 tire for 2004. Other improvements include adjustable lower crown, revised drop-outs and reduced weight.

Strengths: Sturdy, durable, plush, light for what it is
Weaknesses: Design of lowers should be stronger at arch and QR20 clamps
This is a great Freeride/AM fork. Mine has dual HSCV cartridges due to upgrade, which is one of the better damping systems out there. The fork fits Maxxis High Roller 2.7 but could use more clearance. Spring w/ Air P/L works great for making this fork progressive, yet smooth at high speed hits with no spiking.
At the price you can get this fork used, it is a great buy, easily one of the best performing all around forks I have come accross. I use stock springs being 165lbs, but would lik to find titanium replacements for them.

Strengths: Good customer service and good drop damping
Weaknesses: Leaks like there is no tomorrow!!! Trail ride seem unresponsive, doesn't rebound
I'm actually writing to get some advice. I have riden the Risse Trixxy and don't really mind the ride. However I hate the weight of the thing and the rebound just isn't there. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions on a new fork that may still give me good drop performance and a good trail ride? I'm not made of money so I was thinking of something second hand no more than a couple hundred bucks. Please email me i would really appreciate it email@example.com

Weaknesses: alittle heavy, but who cares!!!!
Great fork! suppper smooth. It was alittle harder to set up than other forks that I have had. But the end result is wonderful! super plush. Couldnt ask for better. Feels like an 888 but with cash still in my pocket!

Strengths: Good weight for what it is. Looks cool. Stiff. Ultra plush.
Weaknesses: The axle mounts are terrible, easy to crack if you overtorque them. Be careful and it won't happen. Bottoms easily in stock configuration.
Makes you go really fast.
If you add an air preload cap (20-30 bucks at LBS) to the left leg (replacing the spring preload adjust, but leaving the spring in), then the fork ramps up more and is more adjustable. Its a good compromise, because unlike adding oil, it can be adjusted easily on the trail with an air pump. 10psi for drops and jumps, 0PSI for DH.
Get one if you want a solid FR and DH fork for a low price. Although I'd rather have a 66, the Super T is an excellent fork. Put one of these on your bike, add some air pressure or oil, and it feels amazing. It makes you want to go fast and do stupid things.

Strengths: Light, Strong, Good for anything you can imagine.
Weaknesses: Not as aesthetically pleasing as some of the higher priced marzocchi forks.
These are such great forks. Some people may argue with me but i think that these are every bit as good as the marzocchi 888.The advantage is that they are nearly half the price! They are also a lot lighter. I have evn used these for a spot of dirt jumping. They can also take any height drop you can. Long Live Marzocchi
Weaknesses: Black wears off the stantions, That is only cosmetic so it just dosnt look as cool as when you get it. But nothing ever does.
Very good fork, I would recomend it to anyone. It is the best all around fork I have ridden. I have ridden boxxers before but did not like them nearly as much as the super t. I like to run big tires on the front and you can only run 2.7 with this fork. I like to run 2.8 so there is not that big of a difference but I can tell. Other then that the fork is great. It is low cost and you get alot for your money.

Strengths: Does everything I expected it to do plus some! It has NO stiction, its plush, stiff all around, has a tight turning radius, and best of all, it has VERY interesting adjustments to play around with. Its the first really adjustable fork since my 888. Good going marzocchi!
Weaknesses: Marzocchi has made two real weaknesses with this fork. One doesnt matter that much, and the other BLOWS. 1, the tire clearance is NOT 2.7, as it only fits 2.5's! Second, whenever it bottoms out, the lower crown SMASHES the arch in a fashion wherei'm surprised the arch doesnt break. Although, I hear you can fix this bottoming problem by putting a bit more oil than when bought.
Truly is an amazing fork. ramps up real well compared to some manitou forks that are equally plush, but just blow through their travel. If you're a strictly a dh racer, you probably wont like the supers all that much, but if you're a freerider that like a bit of dh, its bliss. Go Marzocchi!

Weaknesses: none...if it could only clear a bigger tire for drops at da pits and were ever else u would need a huge tire

Strengths: Its pretty adjustable and easy to service,its light and stiff and looks sweet.
Weaknesses: My rebound damper ripped open! My QR-20 bolt snapped.
My Super T was all good untill one day I was at the whistler bike park doing A line, not a very hard trail, when all of a sudden when i was going around a berm for no reason at all my fork suddenly has no damping, it was like a pogo stick, so I went home and took apart the fork and to my surprise the rebound damper tube had actually torn open making a tear about 1 inch long, I talked to the Local Shop and they said it would be about $175 for a new damper. I am not very impressed by the forks durability so I will be trying another brand of fork. I wouldnt reccomend getting one because i am a 125lb XC rider and if i could break one anyone could. I only got 10 moths out of it.

Strengths: Smooth. Stiff. Durable. Adjustable.
Weaknesses: QR20 dropouts.
My "Super T" is actually an '05 Junior with an HSCV cart upgrade. I wanted the HSCV cart and the rebound adjust not found on the Jr. I really disliked the qr20 on the earlier models. Anyway...
Very good fork. I use my Bullit for DH and FR but also as a heavy duty trail bike as well. That means I have to pedal the bike; uphill even... remember that bikes can go uphill. I didn't want a monster fork on the front. Sure, if I rode the lifts all day a 888 would be great but I don't. The T makes for a very capable DH and FR fork but is still nimble enough for aggressive trail duties as well.

Strengths: Looks good on my Red norco Aline, Rebound is Very Adjustable as well as the preload. Really Plush at stock oil level. Has adj crown.
Weaknesses: Bottoms out on a 5footer 3 times. Thats all the problems i have with this
If you get this fork brand new put in more oil. I've used this for about a lil over and month and its bottomed on me 3 times on the same drop and i've checked other reviews and it is really easy to bottom at the stock oil level. Only problem i have so far. Great fork.
Well I submitted a review earlier about this fork and was upset at the time, b/c I had just gotten off the line with Marzocchi. I must of caught them on a bad day, I called later to see about some bushing play I was having, and they ended up warranting it completely, they really helped out the second time around, Although I still believe that the 04 is a bad design for the lowers the fork is super sweet, so please forgive me for the attitude I had in my other review, just remember, don't over torque the dropout bolts!
