Strengths:    Infinite adjustability. Many people complain of bottoming out, well... that's what Compression, spring preload, and air preload are for.. You can't go wrong with this fork in any aspect, especially if youre a freerider. The fork is invincible, and smoooooth, back to marzocchi's old ways before the 08-09 crap.

Weaknesses:    Heavy. 8.2Lbs. Boxxers weight in at an average of 6.5Lbs, even for the entry level, but don't have even close to the adjustment. (Boxxer race)

Bottom Line:   
Excellent fork, I've been a loyal Marzocchi user since early 2000, and have used other stuff, but it was never compelling enough to keep me. Marzocchi always had me coming back for that old school buttery smooth feel.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Best fork I've ridden so far, smoothest and stiffest, feels better than my 2005 888vf.

Im not sure and cant find which leg does what and do they have to be filled with the same amount of air. I usually ride DH or north shore type stuff an ... Read More »

888 RCV and 888 CR

I have been looking at the Marzocchi 888. What is the difference between the 888 RCV and the 888 CR? The CR is about $100 more than the RCV. Are they worth buying or would it be better to just go for a 888 RC3 Evo? I have a Demo 7 with a Totem and always wanted to try a duel crown fork. Would be ... Read More »

Sticky 2008 888 rcv

I've been noticing that the first phew inches of travel are pretty sticky. I weigh 125lb, and with the preload all the way down it is still very difficult to initiate the first few inches. It has the stock spring in it, should I perhaps go to a soft spring?Read More »
