Strengths:    Solid and forgiving

Weaknesses:    Weight?

Bottom Line:   
Good basic fork!
got myself some for free after the standard mx comp's that came on the 2005 specialized p.1 started breaking after gentle riding, my LBS rang up marzocchi and they told them to upgrade my forks to dj 3's for free! win win.
When I owned my p late 2005 till early 2008 i pure gave that bike some abuse, 5ft drops, hucking it down rock gardens, throwing it off huge ass roots into more roots, and throwing it over big ass jumps and it never, ever, ever let me down. never bottomed out, never topped out, never failed on me and I never had them serviced either.
If you know to ride a bike well and want a fork that takes constant abuse and loves you as much as you love it go for some dj 3's if you can get over the weight!

Strengths:    Plush travel, cool looks.

Weaknesses:    NO TRAVEL AT ALL, bottoms out after 3 ft drops, tops out horribly after lifting up handlebars, Paint scratches after everything and ruins the paintjob

Bottom Line:   
Pretty good bike for a rider under 120 lbs otherwise this fork is a waste of money. I am at 155 and this fork just doesn't cut it for me it has no travel and scratchesreally easilly. It makes marizocchi look bad.

Date Reviewed: June 30, 2006

Strengths:    there is no strength for this product, the only thing i can say is the appearence, and it don't looks good with every bike

Weaknesses:    this fork is weak as 5hlt! looks horrible, tops out so badly and it too expensive and is absoloutly weak. its so hard to re adjust the tension and the valve doesn't work propertly. PANIT CHIPPS LIKE MAD, ONE LITTLE SCRATCH AND THE WHOLE PAINT JOB IS RUINED

Bottom Line:   
never buy this shock, its small travel, looks weird, the stanctions are SILVER!, YOUR PAYING LIKE 400 AND THE STANCTIONS ARE SILVER?!!!! it clearly shows that marz don't care. never buy this fork not EVEN.
