Strength:

Amazing. Called bombers for a reason, they survive anything. Saved me quite a few times and the just work with minimum maintanence.

Weakness:

Only bad things is that the oil in my forks leaks a little but its not exactly new

If you don't know what forks to buy buy bombers, they give great shock absorption, never flex and last forever.

Strength:

Much better feel then air shox, plenty of travel

Weakness:

Heavy, not very adjustable

Seems like a pretty good fork, its heavy but so what. Loose some weight if you care about the .3 lbs. It was a cheap upgrade from the manitou six I was using and it looks damn nice.

Strength:

Very nice feel,very strong,even when it does bottom out it does it very unnoticeably, long life

Weakness:

Had a small problim with crown coming loose from stantion
but it is a custom model with different crown (z3.5)
missing 15 mm of travel

great fork, would like stiffer springs and the rest of my travel a little heavy but when you use Alex Supra Pro rims the wieght of your fork is not even something to think about. Buy it if you want a nice fork for a nice price.

Strength:

Plush, stiff, light (compared to RS Jett), smooth, and looks great.

Weakness:

Haven't found any yet

I love this fork. I noticed a huge difference the first time I road it. It seems lighter (may be my imagination) than the Jett, handles beautifully, smooths out the little stuff, handles the big stuff like trees, roots, rocks and small drops real well. Makes riding seem less like work now and much more fun. Found the fork on sale and couldn't be happier. And the bright silver finish looks cool.

EVERY THING! PLUSH, RESPONSIVE, GREAT FOR CROSS COUNTRY, BUT ONLY CROSS COUNTRY!

Weakness:

NOT ENOUGH TRAVEL, BOTTOMS OUT EASILLY IF ITS GIVEN THE CHANCE TO.

THESE FORKS ARE THE BEST IVE TRIED FOR CROSS COUNTRY IN THEIR PRICE RANGE, BUT AS SOON AS I STARTED DOING 5FT.+ DROPS THEY BOTTOM OUT, BUT I DOES NOT SURPISE ME

I recently got a '98 Rocky Mountain Oxygen Race that came with the Z3 alloy as standard equipment. I admit that I haven't tried out too many shocks in my time, but a friend of mine has a '97 Rocky Oxygen with the Rock Shox Indy XC and in my opinion, Marzocchi blows them away. They are a really stiff shock and the rebound is great.

Strength:

Plush, buttery travel. Open bath and easy to adjust.

Weakness:

Except for the weight, nothing.

This is a great shock which has stood up to all the abuse I put it through. I haven't had one problem with it since I bought it even though I biked in -30 weather, and put it through hell and back. A great buy.

Strength:

Its strength! Has anyone ever made this fork flex? Butterly smooth too. Bring the psylos price down by £200 rockshox,and you might have a contender

Weakness:

Weight, but then, we all have a few pounds to shed, don't we?

I've had these forks since last year, and they'd been around for 3 years before that! Bought from re-cycle with a years warranty, giving them 5 years would have cot them nothing in the long run.
Put it like this: who else makes a fork that runs as well as it did when it came out the box four years down the line?

Strength:

This shock works wonders, If got the Z'3 light, they are very plush and can be adjusted easily.

Weakness:

The seals, like on many of the Marazochi forks, leak. I just had one seal replaced and the next day the other seal broke. I am not an agressive rider either

This is a great fork for the intermediate to rookie racer. If your a more serious racer you'll want a bit more. Apart from the seals these shock's are a blast.
