Marzocchi 4X

So can this fork handle abuse of 4x, DS, and trail riding well for a 200lb rider? I have heard different stories on the strength of the fork. I'm not the smoothest rider, but i usually find the tranny. Going on a blur 4X and will replace my van 36 as my ride height is too much.

Also, anyone tell me the axle to crown on a 2007 marz. 4x? Where on the axle to where on the crown is this measured?

The 07 only has the basic dampener. Its a glorified dj2. The 08 wc with rc3 is quite another beast.

yeah I have both. I think the 4x is a better dj and street fork. Whereas the pike is a better trail.

A 20mm 32 talas would be the perfect fork.... haha

hey go-ride- was you're 07 just way too fast and clunky?

When comparing '07 and '08 you are comparing coil and air so there is definitely going to be a difference....

I am riding an '07 NemPro tuned 4X right now that is lowered to 72mm. I love it. Its nice and firm, buttery smooth, and even at that short travel seems to soak everything up. Once I start racing I may bump it to 80mm and then leave it there. I haven't decided. I need to up the compression damping slightly I believe but other than that I am sold.
