I did, but that's why I said manuals and tech docs.

next time I see a Marzocchi employee I will ask him maybe @ Eurobike and we'll have a definite answer :D

The Marzocchi range stays a bit of a mystery.
Here are some shots from different catalogues.

The Bomber Atom with the new crown comes in different versions. There was a Atom 80, a Atom Sport and a Atom Race. The first two might be the same forks with different labels. The Race has adjustable ingoing and outgoing damping as far as I know.

1998 Z2 versions

If you need to know more about the differences in Marzocchi dampers then this link might help: http://ridemonkey.bikemag.com/threads/h ... wtf.87460/

If you're planning to buy a Bomber I'd advise a 2001 / 2002 Bomber Atom with the new type brake arch.

Is anyone able to tell me if this is an Atom Bomb or a later standard version. Stickers are missing but maybe a factory issued fork with a complete bike?

As a reply on the opening post, today I found this photo on eBay.
It's offered as a Atom Bomb.

That is clearly a Z2 Light, it says so on the side.

This is an Atom Bomb viewtopic.php?f=2&t=376155
This is a Light viewtopic.php?f=2&t=304777

you can clearly see the differences ;-)



(same fork, different market name...)
