Currently im in need of a good fork and i need it fast before i break myself with the Suntour XC 60. I mostly ride urban and i enjoy doing dj once in a while. I was thinking of Marz DJ 3 but its way too heavy for me... i would still like to be able to bunnyhop. Plus i dont think i need it that much because im not an agressive rider and i try to make my drops smooth, 5 footer is the most ill ever hit but mostly 2-3.

I was wondering whether i should wait till 05 marzocchi forks come out and whether they will have something new that will work with me better???

Thanks :)

In the current issue of 26 Magazine they have a preview of the newest forks for Marz. I guess they did a product launch recently at Whistler.

The new stuff is the All-Mountain line, adjustable from 130-150mm of travel. They look similar to the Z1. They have some new travel adjustments and gone is the ECC5. It's now TST (Trail Selection Travel, or something like that. Seems like it does the same thing). There is also the 66, which is a 6" travel, single crown fork, which some say is basically a 888, without the extra crown.

The article is brief and doesn't show pix of everything. It notes that there will be the All-Mountain line, Z1 line, Marathon line and the MX line. MSRP on some of the All-Mountain forks is steep at around $769(AM1)-$759(AM-SL) and so on. That's about all I know for sure. There will probably be a lot more info after Interbike in Sept.
