    At RedBull he showed off his GT with a Zokie? I thought Zokie was all over?
    What am I missing?

    Fox bought Marzocchi. That's their version of a 40.

    Check,and what's the word on the quality now that Fox has them? Also,can I or anyone else send in there older
    Zokies to Fox for service? I did not see any on the Pros Sleds in UCI. I have not read much about it since they
    went out of business. Peace.

    I don't think much is known on what exactly a new Marzocchi fork is going to entail. Right now it appears to be a Fox with Marz decals..

    Let's be honest, all we care about is the Zocchi marketing. Anyone got any pics of their models? :brows:

    word i've heard is that fox is servicing marz stuff 2010 and newer.

    the stuff we're seeing from marz now was the last of what was developed prior to the fox takeover. the fox developed stuff that will be marz branded will be hitting 2018 (supposedly).

    the general idea i've heard is that marz branded items are going to be focused mid-tier OEM. Fox branded will be high tier OEM and aftermarket.

    McCaul's looks like a production Fury with a paintjob, the WC team ones are prototype / next years. Would have bet on that 'Marzocchi' being coil-sprung and GRIP-damped too but close ups show that it really is just a Float 40RC2 with paint and gold ano.

    Thanks for the reply. It's sad to see. I have some really nice Forks. In fact I bought one used from here years ago. I have been reading here for a long tine. I have not rode in a while,but I try to keep up,thinking one day I will ride again. One thing that makes me scratch my head is all this fighting over the electric bike. There sick,there getting better,and they aint going nowhere. Remember that Pro Dirt Biker rider that had that a Full Squish at a New York{Nevada} Race I think it was? He was going uphill with it. Anyway,shred away. Peace.

    i've heard a few people say they've gotten fox to service marz stuff that's older than 2010, but it depends on what model fork, what the issue is, and whether or not they have parts (i'm assuming some pre 2010 stuff shares parts with more recent items).

    As stated before, Fox can service select Marz products ~2010 depending on parts availability. You can fill out an online RA request on the Fox website and just fill it in with your Marz product and they will let you know if possible or not. If not, www.mtbforksbymark.com specializes in older Marz stuff, rebuilds/services, even selling refurbished old forks like Shivers and stuff. He's an ex Marz employee and has alot of NOS parts, and is an awesome guy to work with. If you send your fork in to be serviced he will update throughout the whole process with pictures and everything.

    What is the word on the DBC C2R2 cartridge? If I stumble across one cheap is it a worthwhile upgrade over my custom shimmed Evo2?

    buddy of mine in rochester had one on his chumbawumba. it was a rad bike, but he couldn't take care of it worth a damn, and eventually the rest of us got sick of taking care of it for him.


    on that note, out of curiosity i just googled, chumba is still in business (i believe they've changed hands a number of time) and they now make exclusively hardtails.

    Newish. Couple years old.

    Just googled, looks like they've gone off the derp end with plus size/fat bike shit since. His is just a pretty standard 650b.

    Absolutely. My garage wall fork collection has a carbon Dorado and an old 32mm Boxxer WC. I want a shiver and Monster T to complete the set.

    *just gotta check the load bearing capacity of the wall before mounting the Monster T.

    No super monster?


    you must have some arbitrary standard like 'was rideable' going on.

    Nah the sheer quantity of oil in those things means I'd have to outbid BP and Texaco to get one.

    While we are strolling down memory lane, I had a Sepcialized Bighit complete with coil sprung shiver and Avy rear shock and rolled, all be it slowly, on 3" tires...

    Man, I was cool long before this rebirth of coil and plus sized tires.
