Hello
Out of the three companies, Risse, Go-Ride and Marzocchi, who offer flat crown replacement products for a 2005 Marzocchi 888, does anybody have a recommendation on which is the best in terms of durability and fit. I want to upgrade to flat crowns but I need some opinions first. Marzocchi may be the one to go with but I’m not 100 percent sure I want to pay that much…
Thanks for your help.

All really the same. One buddy got Risse another Go-Ride. Samething. Get what ever is cheaper. You will like the lowering Crowns makes a world of Diff.

But the crew dose lean towards Risse just because they are a Sik Company.

risse is the lowest price, plus they have a removable/replacable steertube, which is handy if you end up switching frames and need a longer steertube (happened to me). also, risse has larger bolts that don't slip the allen as easily.
i would go with either risse or marzocchi. if you're gonna drop the coin for the go-ride crowns, might as well get the marzocchi ones.

go for the gold risse crowns-----real perty. They r def cheaper than Zoke crowns by about 30-60 bucks(got mine for $110). The color and the replaceable BOLT IN steerer tube plus the oversized hardware had me sold. Plus i hear they r a drop lighter than zokes. did i mention the gold?

I'll trade you my top 2006 Zoke flat crown for your top 2005 drop crown.

At least you'll have the equation.

888 Flat Crowns...

Thanks a lot for all the information. I'm going with the Risse Flat Crowns. Beyond Bikes has 'em for 170.00 + 10.00 shipping.
Thanks again.
