Looking for your opinions on what fork to get for my 06 Coiler.
09 Marzocchi 55 RC3 vs 09 Rock Shox Domain 318IS Uturn.
Thanks!

The Domain is far less flashy and arguably less sophisticated than the RC3, but the reliability is way better. The RC3 works awesome, but 08-09 Marzocchi products are hit-and-miss. Domains are pretty freakin good, I'd go that route. You can find em ~$300 if you pay attention. There are 3 ending within the next 24hrs on eBay for $300-350. You probably know this, but the 302's suck...gotta be a 318.

Save your cash until you can afford a 2010 Marzocchi 55 RC3

You will then take the benefit of the 2010 Marz Improvements (i.e slotted bushings and a QR 20mm that dosent suck monkey nuts like the last one did) and also have durablility that rivals that of the domain, but with a MUCH better damping system

FWIW Marzocchi's warrentee is easyier to deal with--they have a direct line and you get to talk to a real person. I love the fact that companies like Marzocchi & Fox have a tech support line.

You have to love this kind of post....pure regurgitation of marketing BS. Shiver, is that you in disguise?

Please show me the sample population of any 2010 Marz forks that show a stastically significant durability increase from Marz of the past 2-3 years. (hint, you might want to wait until more than a couple people have actually ridden them for a significant time).
