Strength:

these shocks hold up good and are better then the rst launches i have

Weakness:

the arent as squishy as i wanted them to be,cant really ajust

i would reccomend these shocks to people if you are begginer or intermedite but if you are really good and have a lot of mooney burning a whole in your pocket i would deffinetly get a pair of fo floats!!!!!!!

Strength:

durable, good response time

Weakness:

cannot adjust to the stiffness i need.

for any regular dirt jumper, this fork kicks booty. whether youre riding street, park or a rhythm set in the woods, it bombs. definately above average performance but the bottom line is im a 310lb rider and i do some cuhrazy stuff and its just not beefy enough for me.

Strength:

unbreakable, fell amazing for about a month.

Weakness:

seals wear quickly, dosent use all of its travel, adjustments dont do anything.

dont upgrade to this fork. feel very nice for about a month, but then feel very worn out like wal-mart bike forks and seals leak.

Strength:

white oem fork is nice looking

Weakness:

adjustment, internals

no adjustment what so ever, after 10 hours of riding they felt like an rst fork !. i seriously dont recommend these to anyone. marzocchi have moved their factory from italy to somewhere else and since then the fork build and spec quality seems terrible.i would suggest spending the extra money like i just have and have ordered a rock shox argyle 302. lignter, stiffer, 20mm axle (granted double the price but its worth every penny) motion control and lock out. for 300 gbp. these forks for 08 and 09 have elastomer stacks in the left legs. for anyone who doesnt know what this is its suspension technology that is 5 years old! granted this fork looks good, but it really isnt. so dissapointed. for 2005 marzocchi were offering the dj3 fork for 150 gbp with dual air adjustment and internal travel adjustment. check out their website... the pictures speak for themselves.

Strength:

Strong, simple, cheap, nice fealing to them.

Weakness:

I would like better rebound, but since i have changed it i have not bottomed out, but i would still like it to be a little stiffer. no dampening, but they feel nicer than a DJ2 imo

These are a good fork for a budget build, they are strong, simple, only complaint is dampening and preload, but even still the preload isnt all that bad. I guess a lot of people would say there heavy, but im not a weight weenie (as you can see from my bike setup). Btw im a street/park rider
