Nope, no improvement to the current damping, but since you haven't tried the current high-end damping, I guess the point is moot.Jm. said:Some of their bikes suck too, they are just skilled enough to overcome the deficiancies and take advantage of the lighter weight. I'd never buy an Orange, despite it is a "winning" bike.
Besides, there's nothing wrong with pointing out that there is no improvement to the damping.
Your dog is drooling again, Pavlov.Jm. said:no improvements to the damping, just gimmicks on the forks...
how much you want to bet that he has a program running on his computer to alert him any time the word boxxer comes up so he can run off to bash them b/c he didn't like his 2003 race...DH40 said:Your dog is drooling again, Pavlov.
Just see if you can let one, ONE Boxxer thread go by without comment.
It's tiresome, this 'public service' you seem to think you are performing.
When I retire my Boxxers one day and move on, it will still be tiresome, Jm.
BTW Team turner in Orange County (Los Angeles) has all their Boxxer forks redone by Push Industries. They ripp everything out internally and rebuild those shitty, leaky, blown forks.dante said:shhhhh, don't tell any of these guys that their forks suck....
oh, btw, what was the top Marzocchi finish at that race?
interesting, G. Atherson (#6 UCI/WC ranked DH) is on a stock 2003 (maybe 2004?) boxxer that he personally bought b/c he doesn't have a sponsorship. Guess he does pretty well on a shitty, leaky, blown fork...SHIVER ME TIMBERS said:BTW Team turner in Orange County (Los Angeles) has all their Boxxer forks redone by Push Industries.

Yes, Marzocchi has a justified and very vocal Tifosi. I would rather hear someone say Mi Bella Marzocchi!, rather than Rock Shox Sux! any day. I'm not even a huge RS supporter, but the fact is, on my low budget, I have outfitted a ragtag group of Sport racers with 2002 (note the model year!) Boxxers that have been excellent all-around forks for epic TR and DH racingcheloco said:I like to use my fork not work on them....That is why I ride Marzocchi,una bella maquina...
the same people who bash them are people who used older ones or the low-end race. The Team and WC have high and low-speed compression & rebound adjustments, and I haven't touched my fork all season. No leaking, no blown fork, is more supple *and* more bottom-resistant than my 2002 SuperT. It's just fun to watch some of these people foam at the mouth b/c their 2002 fork gave them problems or their 1999 leaked at the seals.DH40 said:LOL....yep
I run a fleet of 2002s -love em.
Nah. Depends what you look for. High end racing fork Dorado. All Around Beat the Mother phucking crap out of and still come out ok . Marzochi, I like my dorado because I don't like to throw my self off clifs how's that going to improve your DH skills?DHbiker said:See-Marzocchi's are the best out there, no question.
what, do we always ride to improve our DH Skills? yes, we ride to improve all the time but what about freeride? i dont need a dorado or a boxxer to freeride...i need a reliable fork, that peforms like a fork should. and i can care less about wieght...thats where marzocchi comes in...Monster For Life! ...i like shermans too though...Max_winner1 said:Nah.
