Date Reviewed: October 11, 2011

Strengths:    Feels like Marzocchi of old, smooth plush travel.

Weaknesses:    Lack of fine tuning adjustments

Bottom Line:   
I have ridden many forks and I Love this fork. This fork has been great so far. I love that marzocchi went back to the dual bath damping. For the money you can't go wrong.

Strengths:    Smooth travell, open bath, good spring rate

Weaknesses:    Check oil level befor riding, mine was too high, would have caused it to leak.

Rebound control has little effect, 2010 888RCV has way more range


Bottom Line:   
Nice basic coil fork just like the old Marzocchi(dual coil, open bath)

Strengths:    price, durable, reliable, best bang for the bucks, thru axle

Weaknesses:    weight @ 6.2 lbs, no lockout on this model,

Bottom Line:   
didn't want to pay $500 plus for Fox. wanted something affordable for my simple bike. the company been around for many years, had a bad year in 08 and 09 due to subcontract to china. this is 2010 model suppose to have corrected issues and bring back ownership. took it a few times on small trail around the house, so far so good..no leaks, dont even feel small bumps and eats up moderate jumps. will take to intermediate trail at chino hill park and test soon.

Marzocchi 55 RV?

Anyone using these - they seem very cheap compared to a 36 Vanilla or Lyrik. Granted it doesnt have the versatility of the Lyrik uturn coil with travel adjust but they look good value. Pics welcome :)Read More »
