18 months and kaput
I want Something like my Marz Bam z4's ten years old and have only had an oil change
Guess there not made like they used to be!!!
Ahhh, but they do. Not 10 years ago but 4.
Probably the best fork Marzocchi have ever made is the 2003/2004 model year Marathon - the one with the gold alloy knobs. 105 or 120mm travel, dual coil sprung with air preload. External rebound adjust and ETA. Made in Italy and made properly like all Marz' forks used
They are totally reliable and virtually maintenance free. You can find a pair secondhand for about £120 or so. The bushes will last for life, seal kit is £13 and will last for years. That's it - oil change every few years - no fettling, leaking, fussing or NASA degree needed for set-up. Preload, rebound and ride for ever.
(PS - I have a set for sale!
