dear all,

up for sale is a lovely, very little used Marzocchi Z2 Atom 80 suspension fork.
It is in great shape, see pictures for yourself. I also have a spare set of
air/oil seals kit, if interested.

Some impressions:

Do you have the Vbrake studs for it still? Will you ship to the US? Thanks!

Hi Andy,

I do ship to the US but shipping is a little bit more expensive, but I can send it as a gift though :)

I think you just have to take out the tho black screws and then you can use V-Brakes, you don't need extra studs!

Cheers,
Peter

Sorry to interrupt, and I don't mean to be patronising, but you definitely DO need to add studs before you can mount V brakes. Something that looks a bit like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Marzocchi-Brake ... B002SR7KG0

Here is a listing on UKbikestore for the ones you need - specifically for M-arch forks- unfortunately they are out of stock at the mo:

They hold the brace onto the lowers and provide the post for the brake arms to sit on :)

Thanks for the info, but why is there a whole that could hold the spring of the brake? Usually one has three holes, but here's only one because one uses the middle one in 99% of the cases.

I will try to mount some V-Brakes tomorrow.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi Pete,

Hard to explain and I can't find a decent pic to help. You're exactly right that the hole you mentioned is used to hold the brake spring, and you also need a post sticking out of the fork to hold the rest of the brake. That post goes in the hole that the bolt is currently in. For the M arch forks, these posts are extra long as they are a structural part of the fork

See the diagram marked "9" on page 19 of the owner's manual:
