a-2-c sounds correct.


I would expect the ETA to work like it does on the rest of their forks - it should drop down to approx 40-50mm of visible stanchion.

I'm looking into the Marzocchi 66 Light ETA but I'm only finding limited info on the specs. Specifically, the Axel-to-Crown height, and how much the ETA drops the travel. On Speedgoat they list the AC height as being 555.2mm, can anyone verify this?
On mine I measured the AC (and possibly not the most precise measurement) at 545, 525 when set at 130mm travel. I find that when I use the ETA and compress the fork by weighting it it settles about 1/2 way into its travel. If you hit bigger bumps it will compress more but since I only use ETA on long, steep climbs I don't find it to happen much. Marzocchi's website list the AC as 538.5, 518.5 at 130mm.

How do you change travel on that fork? Or 130mm after you engage ETA?

Those sound like the numbers for the Z1, not the 66. The chart you linked to shows the A-C for the 66 series to be 555.2 mm.

555.2 is for a 170mm
535.2 is for 150mm

The 66 appears to be 3.3 mm shorter than the Z1.
