    66RC on a AM bike?

    Would any of you put a MZ 66 RC (150 mm) on a Blur LT?

    I mean would you use it in a All Mountain setup?

    Thanks

    It's a pretty tall fork, at least the 170mm set up is. Great fork, very responsive, but might slack out your rig too much. Compare the dimensions on marzocci.com to your current set up.

    I'd slap a 170mm 05, (tall model), on there so fast it'd make yer head spin. But thats my prefrence. After riding a slack ha for so long, it makes anything else seem like I'm going OTB. I would consider a 66 SL adjustable travel an' all. Light & its a Zokie. SWEET !

    Well, they say it can take a 160mm fork, so you should be ok. The geometry specs are measured with a 496mm fork height. Maybe a 66SL, so you could fine tune the fork height if it feels too slack.

    I don't know...My 66 (170mm) went on my Heckler and I thought it was too tall. I used that as an excuse to get a 6.6 frame.
    Sad, right?

    So the 150 would be ok on a blur LT then?

    I am also considering the Heckler, it is a lot cheaper (X9 AM package and 07 Float 140 RLT + 07 Float R runs at $2535 only).

    My other choice is the MKIII expert, same price as the Heckler ($2600)

    The Blur LT option is getting too expensive for my budget...

    thoughts?

    I wouldn't put a 66 (except maybe an SL) on a Blur LT. They'd be sweet on a Heckler though. What kind of riding are you going to be doing?

    66RC 150mm has a 575m a-c height. I wouldn't want that fork on my Bullit or Heckler. I run 550mm a-c height's on both my bikes. My Heckler has a 05' Z1 150mm, my Bullit has a 66 RC2X. 66 coil forks are quite heavy too @ 6.5 ish lbs.
