    Clearance for Marzocchi Corsa Superleggera

    I'm looking into this fork and wanted to know if anyone has this fork and has had tire clearance issues as I've heard that the arch will only clear up to a 2.2 tire. Also, please list which brand and size tires you have used and the approximate amount of clearance and pictures would help as well. Marzocchi Corsa Superleggera 29er Tapered Fork 2012 at Price Point

    Thanks davthedude, perhaps you and others with this fork can post up pictures. Btw, how did you like the Gatos? I'm currently using Ardents 2.4 so don't know if they would clear the arch as they run quite tall.

    i would be happy to put some pics up but my daughter has borrowed my camera. I like the Gatos and run them on my rip9 with a tst44 marzocchi they are round and the noobs surrond the casing they turn and hook up really well and the side walls are tough. i like Hans Dampf on the el mariachi with the corsa because the volume and cushion is really good and really grippy. either tire worked better for me than Ardents that were flater profile also my friend confirmed Gato is more positive cornering than the Ardents.as soon as my nikon comes home i will get u some pics
