Strengths:    Solid as a brick. really easy to change the settings on it. very good when hitting big stuff. good quick reasle system, take seconds and mine has never failed. look awsome? has a hug compresson difference from nealy rock solid to nealy 50% in , just when you leane over the front. never need servising even know it is advised , mine hafent been servised sence 2009 and there still plush and amazing to ride.

Weaknesses:    There heavy weighing in at 3.2Kg. and unlike it being amazing over big jumps and rocks, but over small routs it feel`s like there no travel at all and kills your wrist after a long track.

Bottom Line:   
basicly there really good, and if you have a heavy frame ect old demo or somthing then these forks are amazing ! , but these on something with a light frame, and i can promise you, you will go over the handle bars haha

Strengths:    I have the 1.5 version, takes more to steer than if using the regular ones. Very beefy and can take a few drops without vomiting out the air like older air forks. The stanchions are 35mm so its pretty stiff on the cornering-- a plus.

Weaknesses:    this is the cheap 66 so I cant complain about more adjustments

Bottom Line:   
This is a good fork, kinda of a dummy fork with a few adjustments, but its a pitbull fork. Not real smart but gets the job done. Its legs are fatter than most on the market and its weight saving---if you want to go there, is that its air sprung. Buy one, set the rebound and air and forget it.

Strengths:    Insanely stiff, very plush over small bumps and rocks but can soak up bigger hits and drops perfectly even though I weigh 220 pounds

Weaknesses:    They are pretty heavy

Bottom Line:   
Love them, they work great (far exceed the rear suspension) and didn't cost an arm and a leg

CONFUSED with my fork (marzocchi 66 rcv 2010)

I am trying to understand my marzocchi fork (66 rcv 2010). Seems like everybody has a different opinion. It has two ways of setting preload. Coil-preload AND air-preload. I just like to know which one I should use, and why, and what the other one is for, or how i should combine them. I mailed mar ... Read More »

Are these supposed to click? Mine don't. Also the compression side is leaking oil. I haven't even had this thing out on the trail yet.Read More »

Can't get enough sag for my fork (2009 Marzocchi 66 RCV)

Hey guys, I was starting to dial in my 2009 Marzocchi 66 RCV last night. I got on with my full face helmet and clothes and made sure that the fork doesn't have air in both legs. I sat on and got 1.5" of sag. 1.5" = 38.1mm. The fork is 180mm of travel. So 38.1/180x100 = 21%of sag. When ... Read More »
