Strength:

everything! this fork rox. i love it. it is the best fork i have ever owned. f*ck all of you who says this fork sux. it does what it is suposed to. BUY THIS FORK

Weakness:

your kidding......right?

XC SUX

this is the best fork for the money you could get, words canot describe how much i love this fork. it is plenty strong and stiff. i have taken this thing off 15-20ft drops and it did bottom out dont get me wrong but it took them great. all i need to get is some stiffer springs,(the person i bought it from was alot smaller and lighter than me) and i will be set. i have heard some people mention that you can get 6 inches of travel out of em' can any one tell me how?

and also if any one that lives in a country other than the US sees this and wants to make some money quick cheep and as easy as a trip to your local sporting goods store e-mail me and we can talk about it.


ps i need some clips for my ruger 10/22. some 25 rnd or mare would be great.

Strength:

The fork has a very smooth action and has Marzocchi's typical brilliant quality. Active to small hits, tollerant to big hits. Made in Italy. Oil-bath design keeps the fork in good order and it's got awesome seals.

Weakness:

*Needs more travel
*could be stiffer
*should have optional 20mm axle.
*could do with rebound adjustment

Reasonable fork, plush, needs more travel and optional 20mm axle. Not good enough for DH racing, but great for freeride

I recently put a Jr T on my 98 Klein Mantra and this fork rules! Its super plush on small hits and really soaks up the large ones when you're bangin. Gives me the extra confidence that I can recover from anything! Steering is extra precise too. Had to install the heaviest spring right from the start(but I do weigh 220lbs)and the reported bobing that the fork does uphill has been greatly exagerated. Thed one negative is no external compression or rebound dampening, however, RCRracing has a coilover cartridge coming out for Jr T on June 1. This Bomber is Da Bomb!

Strength:

very good fork. nice and plush for some of those downhill drop-offs.looks good.heaps stiff.

Weakness:

if your a sirios downhiller than its not for you but if your beggining or arnet to good than its awsome.

awsome fork if your a not so hardcore downhiller you culd take it of 6ft drop and it will take it good.
so over all this fork is extremley good!!!

I owned a Z1 previously, and loved the adjusters and their effectiveness... This fork lacked that... And hence, lacked performance... Nice and stiff steering... But the bad far outweighs the good

Lack of adjusters
Lack of fork boots
I blew the seals on my first test... Whats up?!

Strength:

light and looks nice, not to expensive.

Weakness:

Plenty. Always leaks oil like a dog, the cheap crown crack like a twig. Not even plush as I'd like.

If you like to ride at the beach bike path or sissy girl trails, buy it. If you plan to get radical, forget it.

Strength:

Not to heavy and pleanty sensative. Long travel for a thirteen year old,me.Changeable springs

Weakness:

To soft for shore riding (Vancouvers North shore). Floating valves and bottomleg bolts.

Good for a thirteen year old North Shore Rider and great for 8' drops with a stiffer spring in them, Watch those floating valves and bottem leg bolts.

Strength:

Great fork. Very strong, great rebound. Its looks cool too.Best fork I've owned yet.

Weakness:

I see no weaknesses in it.

The best free-ride fork. So far it's held up great. Rides good. But if your looking for a fork for just downhill,you probably would want to go with a Monster T.
