Date Reviewed: February 15, 2005

Strengths:    there is no breaking this shock. the only one i have ever heard of breaking was a man at my bike store who weights 250lbs, doing a 15ft. drop. but he only bent the stem

Weaknesses:    unless you weight more then 250lbs. the only down side is the weight.

Bottom Line:   
this is the BEST shock that money can buy for thoes who are serious about DH and don't mind a little extra weight in the front ... but that is easy to ajust for.

I have only come across one or two places that have old Zocchi parts, and most seem not to have the 40 ... Read More »

Can anyone help with 2002 Marzocchi Monster T?

Hi all. I inherited a 2002 Marzocchi Monster T fork with one of my bike purchases. The manual is still online for this fork, but it isn't a model of clarity and doesn't clearly state what adjusters the fork should have. Can anyone help me with this: There are two adjusters on the right fork leg ... Read More »

Anybody have old Monster T parts lying around?

I just picked up a Monster T as part of a used "budget bike". I'm wondering if anybody has parts lying around that I could have/buy to fix it up. To make this not totally spam, the problem is that the upper part of the stanchion tube is cracked, as if somebody tightened the top cap too hard. It ... Read More »

Monster T vs. Boxxer

So I currently run a very old Monster T ('99) up front, and I was wondering if it would be an upgrade to go to an '03-'05 boxxer. Obviously it's a newer fork but I'm mainly wondering if it's got a faster rebound or if it's just generally smoother.Read More »
