Weaknesses:    havier than mentioned on the marz. website

Bottom Line:   
I bought this for as I wanted to ride something else than the fox 40 which I like very much but It needed a service every season which is quite expensive. I rode the fork only a few times and they work good but they are heavy. 500 grams more (around 2,750 grams)then mentioned on the marz. website and the national dealer confirmed it as well. Why do they cheat and don´t write down the right weight?

Strengths:    Ridgid and plush as all heck, tons of adjustment.

Weaknesses:    need spring options

Bottom Line:   
I like the fact that I don't have to constantly worry about servicing this thing every 20 hours. Handles sweet right out of the box. SUPER plush as always. Love the adjustments they seem to be easier to dial in that the Fox 40. I desperately need a heavy spring. I wish that Marzocchi would hurry up and ship those out. I giving 4 flaming chili's for that specific reason. Other than that, the forks rock. Can't go wrong with these.
