Strengths:    Very smooth ride yet still fairly light. Also like the reliability of coil spring fork. Forks have compression and rebound adjustment.

Weaknesses:    This fork has no lockout or travel adjustments.

Bottom Line:   
So far I'm really happy with these forks. I got them set up right and haven't touched the adjustments since then. These forks do not have a lockout but I haven't found myself missing it at all. With the titanium spring and open bath design these forks should be very reliable with little maintenance compared to air sprung forks. These forks also come with a 3 year warranty from Marzocchi should anything go wrong.

Strengths:    Effective adjustments, good damping, 15mm axle system is simple and works well

Weaknesses:    Only comes with one spring. If you're below the riding weight, you're SOL. Weird proprietary top caps that aren't so user service friendly.

Bottom Line:   
I like the fork a lot so far. Replaced a 3 year old Pike Dual Air that I LOVED. Damping seems good. Not a huge range of adjustment but works well enough for my needs. Chromed stanchions look cool but seem to require some lube to keep them moving smoothly. Only small gripe is that the stock Ti spring is fork someone 10 to 20 pounds heavier than I. Since I'm not willing to shell out another $200 or whatever for a new spring, I'm using the stock one, so the fork is a bit over-sprung for me (although I do like that the fork stays high in the travel and seems to be more brake dive resistant than the Pike, which may also be a function of the compression damping). If you're significantly less than 140# and don't want to buy a softer spring, I'd say skip this fork. Otherwise, so far so good.
