Yeah pikes are still expensive, they donnt make them anymore do they?
What was wrong with the psylo? I thought they were ok? They go well on the ms isle.
My patriot originally came with fox r125's so maybe look for them?
I too love marz from that era, solid forks. It was only after they moved production from italy to taiwan in 07 i believe. Not a bad thing being made in taiwan i hear you say but they had loads of trouble with leaks and dodgy carts and stuff. Only really just getting back on their feet. You have to make a fork that stands out against the rest to regain credibility, theyre doing this with the micro ti series.
The Psylo was awful! I've never ridden such a wobbly fork in my life. Even with a teeny rotor they used to flex under braking. They used to break a lot too.
I think as soon as Marz followed the trend for adjustable travel forks it all went wrong...the original ATA cartridge was useless (my AM1's spent more time at Windwave waiting for new cartridges than they did on my bike). They are better, but still seem prone to failure. The RC3 cartridge is a different story.....awesome.
I think there is a demand for simple products (i.e. people like me who hate adjustable travel). If only Marz would start doing something like this again.....open bath, coil, rebound, compression = happy days.
