Strengths:    Looks, feel, travel (for the cost), great rebound.

Weaknesses:    No air component, but that doesn't take anything away from the performance, just adds a bit of weight, but it's not noticable.

Bottom Line:   
For the price, you cannot beat this fork. It has 6.4" of travel and is insanely sturdy, no flex whatsoever. The knobs on the top are actually made of metal, and marzocchi finally fixed their problems for sure after the 2008-2009 models! It has excellent rebound control, and well looks sick. Super smooth going over rocks, and handles 5' drops with ease. Marzocchi doesn't disappoint.

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 »
