I have no idea if there is anywhere else to go. This is the best buke on the planet. Done some serious DH on it and it performs flawlesly. Takes a little while to dial the rear shock in but that just means the ride is more perfect. Compared to other bikes I have riden with a serious DH slant(kona stinky deelux, spesh big hit, test ridden an orange 222)this bike is in a different league.The 222 was lighter but seemed to be a bit less active (i imagne thats to do with the single pivot). The other two bikes are great but they are pale immitations of the real deal.

The M3 tracks beautifully and gives outstanding grip. It sticks to the floor and allows this average rider to go faster than he thought he could. It has bottomless travel and simply is probably the last downhill bike I think I will ever buy...........unless I break it........not too likly.

I'm Jonesing for an M3 so bad! Wish I could afford one, maybe next season. NICE RIDE!!

I had an 02 shiver on my Super 8 and it was the biggest peice of junk. I'm sure it was a fluke on
Zocchi's part but they had to give me a killer deal on a 888RC to replace it. I did love the way it
rode though, SUPER plush!

Currently getting the money together for the all new 06 888's. Should look truly pimp in white. Have heard good things about them.

Yeah, my triple 8 RC is pretty sweet but I don't even think I got it broke in by the end of the season. It looks a little "out of place" on my 99 Super 8 but oh well. The nice thing about the RC is it's got TONS of clicks for adjustment. If I can get my hands on a M1 or M3 this winter then I'll be set up pretty sweet for next season.
