My marzocchi bomber z3 fork has slowly been leaking oil ever since I got it re-tuned at my local bike shop. I figure that it is probably time to replace the fork all together rather than stress over sending it to marzocchi or hunting down old seals. So my question is what type of fork would you recommend? I ride a lot of single track and I like to go fast and hit jumps. Something with as much travel as possible, without throwing off the geometry of the bike and won't be a pain to pedal on the road.


Thanks. Joe

I have 98 marzocchi jr t on my lts and it seems to compliment the back end in downhill full travel mode maybe a bit squishy for xc

Didn't the JrT have SSV damping? AFAIK it sucks as it spikes as shite when going hard.

Umm no idea. 2 springs and a black plastic rod with an alloy valve has compression and rebound and seems to work fine for me. Maybe I dont ride hard enough
