Strengths:    Super plush, highly tunable (and only one spring weight), light weight, and the quick release! Marzocchi answered my emails on fork tuning in two hours - very helpful!

Weaknesses:    none found yet with the actual fork. The Marzocchi manuals are absolutely useless as far as tuning tips or even basic explanation of 'RC3', so unless you have a lot of time to play around randomly with the non-intuitive adjustments, best to email the company reps.

Bottom Line:   
I used to like the '07 and earlier Marzocchi products, but took a break from them in '08 and '09 while they went through their 'growing pains' of Asian manufacturing. In January 2010, I was looking for a new single crown, and wanted to try the brand new 'back to the way we used to be' Marzocchis. This fork is phenomenal, and exceeded my expectations - an obvious upgrade from the Totem coils I was using, and a lot lighter than even my old ATA. I have no recollection of ever bottoming out, even though the rubber washer shows I've used all the travel on a few occations - it's that smooth. I'd almost believe I was using a dual crown Fox if it wasn't for the fact I could turn my handlebars all the way around. This fork completely blows Totems out of the water.

Marz 66 rc3 ti why 2 preload options?

I have just put a 2011 marz 66 rc3 ti on my kona entourage. Can anyone explain to me why this fork has both spring preload as well as air preload? Do you only use the air if you can't put enough preload into the spring? Seems a little redundant to have both if you can't get enough preload in the sp ... Read More »
