Strength:

Super plush, I've dropped these things off a 12 footer and didn't come close to bottoming them out. One word describes these forks best: indestructable

Weakness:

hard to adjust

A great fork that can handle anything, even after taking years of abuse. I'd definitly recommend this fork to anyone looking to get into downhilling or freeride.

Strength:

Smooth, easy to adjust, durable, low maintenance.

Weakness:

QR20 flip lock design is junk, tire clearance issues

great fork, even better with some small mods. had some issues getting brake caliper to align with the disc, but thin spacers took care of that.

James   Downhiller [Jul 02, 2003]
Strength:

Super Stiff, Integrated Stem, Super easy to tune and service, it's a Marzocchi

Weakness:

Doesn't feel as smooth as a Super T

This fork kicks butt. I've launched 10-15 footers with it many times and it has bailed me out on a few occasions when my form wasn't that good. On repeated hits like rock gardens and the like it doesn't feel as smooth as a Super T but in my opinion that's not really worth the extra $300+. BTW, all you need to do is add a little oil to the fork if it bottoms on you. Marzocchis are rediculously easy to tune and work on, just spend a little time with it, get it dialed where you wnat it and the 2 of you will happily grow old together. I've got a friend still launching on his '99 Mr. T so you know that Marzocchis last a long time. If you're serious about freeriding forget the rest, Marzocchi's the best.

Strength:

everything

Weakness:

tire clearance

Junior t's are awsome forks but they should be beefed up to fit a 3.0 tire.

evan   Downhiller [Jun 26, 2003]
Strength:

everything...this shock has a lot of travel but not too much..it allows you do freeride but it can also climb very well

Weakness:

low tire clearence...i could probably fit a 2.7 with enough clearence

this shock is dope...it can do everything you throw at it with ease and you dont need to worry about bottoming out..its also cool to say you have a dual crowned fork...bottom line..this shock is sick!

BRIAN OWENS   Weekend Warrior [Jun 19, 2003]
Strength:

03' Jr. T has saved me from endoing about 10 or so times off 4-7ft drop-offs...
i street ride 10-30km almost daily. Lots of uphill.. no problem. They weigh under 6 pound!!

Weakness:

disc compatible only... so i have no front brake yet. NO Problems with these forks. Only seem to get more plush on the inital hit

Even with a hardtail, these forks are wicked!! Very nice matte black finish. Forgiving when you F**k up a 6' drop. Super stiff. Believe me, own these forks and you will be happy everytime you ride. Man, they look deadly on a hardtail!! Buy them now!

Strength:

Everything for freeriding.

Weakness:

None

The Jr T rocks. The stock spring is perfect for my weight and riding style. Took some big crashes and still works like new. Tire clear is low, but I run Maxxis High Roller 2.7 w/ comfortable clearance.

Sam Jolly   Downhiller [Jun 07, 2003]
Strength:

Stiff and Strong

Weakness:

Low tyre clearance
Stock forks are way too soft

First i am a Freerider! Not a Downhiller! I ride big drops and gaps! I dont just ride Downhill!

Anyway the I just got my Stinky Dee 3 weeks ago and its been sick. The only problem is that the bike shop set up the suspention too soft for normal downhill! When I ride the bike off drops only six feet high the forks bottom almost instantly. Also there is loads of sag on the forks. I want NO EXTRA SAG!!

The forks are good value for money, but don't have external rebound adjustment. If you ride big drops get heavier springs and oil.
