    Strength:

    mucho simple, plush travel, bottomless feel, i can take it apart in 15 minutes, adjusters actually DO something (but they lower travel by 20 mm in the tightest setting.) and now, theyre a dime a dozen. not to raked out on my mountaineers backyard special 03 hardrock comp hardtail either.

    Weakness:

    heavy (good thing if you have added some NYrs/christmas poundage), cant climb well because it bobs like crazy, the travel has some stiction for like 10mm at the very top, but once you break through the stiction, its really smooth, it doesnt require long hours of relaxing reading of the manual when work is needed, which means i dont have an excuse to sit inside of my cozy little mountain home infront of my christmas tree and relax!

    awesome!!!! it really is a piece of cake to work on. i DJ, DH, AM, painfully XC, 4x, trail, and commute with this fork every day. (im 16, i mow lawns, fix mtbs and dirt bikes, and wash cars for money so i have plenty of spare time) my life is riding. i beat the holy hell out of this fork. this thing has no creaks, no nothing scary, it does flex if i dont check the crown for a few days (maintenance says to check it after every ride), it had slim to zip dapmening before i swapped the stock light oil with KTM racing heavy oil, now it feels really nice. follow up on youre maintenance and your fork will look as ugly as mine, and preform just a good as mine!!! its a really nice fork!!

    Fourche tres résistante, plus de 5 ans d'utilisation, tres peu d'entretient.
    Encaisse parfaitement les gros chocs, super amortissement
    130 de débattement pour une fourche de 2000, pas chere!
    QR20 pratique

    Weakness:

    Pas de reglage externe de la détente.
    Pas la plus légere.

    J'ai utilisé cette fourche depuis 2001 en randon descente, free ride légé.

    Elle possede le kit 130 mm de débattement.
    Tres bon amortissement, solidité a toute épreuve
    Le fonttionnement est toujours si agréable apres 5 ans, je ne l'ai vidangée qu'un fois et tout va bien. Utilisée avec un disque en 200 m, elle se tord légerement mais tout va bien quand meme.
    Aussi efficace sur les petits que les gros chocs si elle est bien reglée en précontrainte.
    Le reglage de la détente s'effectue a l'aide d'une longue BTR a l'intérieur des fourreaux!
    J'aime cette fourche, que du bonheur

    Weakness:

    Ha!

    this fork transformed my cross country bike into a legit freeride hardtail. coupled with my sick front tire (Love semi-tubeless), my bike doesn't stop rolling, even through nasty canadian roots. It is so plush it is not even funny. i fell off a skinny up at the shore, landed front tire first, and the fork sucked it up with out bottoming out. then it gave me a nice gentle rebound-assisted toss over the bars, saving my nuts. Finally, even though my bike is 3 pounds heavier, it actually climbs better because i don't have to worry about steering on climbs. Amazing Amazing product. bonus: fork comes set up for my weight out of the box, so all i did was adjust the rebound dampning a half turn to make it perfect!

    Marzochi turn around time for extra parts!!!

    After an upgraded spring(for 220+lbs) this fork rocked!! I did have trouble out of the box, But that was on KONA! Customer service is AWESOME, BUT...turn around time was hell!!
    This is a FAT BOY fork all the way
    ! No problems- simple to tune and super plush!!

    Weakness:

    bad adjuster caps. They call this fork bombprof? I'm a 14 year old freerider and I was wheeling around my block and the lower sanctions came off w/ the wheel. no disc mount(only hays compatable)

    Great fork that worked fine until..

    good for light freerider or craxy xc rider

    not for dh rider or crazy freerider

    Strength:

    Whoa baby!! These forks are ace! They are stiff, beefy looking and strong with replaceable everything.

    Weakness:

    Rebound adjustment can be a bit of a faff for little wieners that cry over a little spilled oil, but isnt a problem for the mentally sound.

    This fork is incredible. It eats anything you throw at it and then begs for more. I've crashed out countless times, and even when a cubic inch if material is missing, they perform faultlessly. They took a hell of a beating last weekend and they're still smoother than barry white sliding round in a teflon pan. If you demand strength and stiffness over weight, these little babies are for YOU! Z3 QR20, have a well deserved 5 !!!!

    Marzocchi quality awsome!!QR20 really stiff dropout. 4 or 5 inch of travel. External ajustments are user friendly. The last year marzocchi put the replacable arch. Get one now!!Very cheap for the quality!!

    Weakness:

    None at all. You all that think it breaks go to hell!!!!1

    Not that heavy for a downhill fork. Will never die if mine does im gettin another for sure. Very stiff, made by italians and not chinese slave labour. The dopest fork on the face of this earth. Go buy one you won't be dissapoited.I'd give it 6 flamin dog doos but i can't.

    Very Strong,Plush,Active,All Round Great Fork very nice for
    rocks,stumps and big ass weelie drops

    Weakness:

    some sag when broken in, otherwise nothing for me yet

    This is an awesome fork the only thing i can compare it to is the 99 Z1 Drop Off. Very Excellent fork when set to 5 inches. You can leave it at 4 but for 6-12 ft weelie drops id set it for 5 inches. I would definatly buy another one when mine breaks this is like the best fork ever!! People lookin for big weelie drops and cross country trail riding should make this fork a must.

    Strength:

    Great fork for a great price. This is a SIMPLE fork w/ little to get broken(on a free ride fork that is important!!). Excellent compression adjustment, fortunately my fork came from then factory w/ the rebound adjusted perfect for a 190lb rider. I will never ride a fork w/ a 9mm ft axle agi8n on a suspension fork, 20mnm thru axle is the only way to go!!

    Weakness:

    THe added weight from the canti bosses for those who have not made the jump to disk brakes. And a Steel steerer tube. For this level of perfomance it should be aluminum.

    Excellent fork,simple set-up for myself,could be a little lighter but who counts grams on a freeride bike!! works great in all conditionsand this fork was one of the deciding factors in chosing this bike.QR 20 is the way of the future for all suspension technology!!!!
