    Is this common?

    I have a Marzocchi fork that was brought up to 120mm from its factory setting of 100mm. I measured the stantion tube that's showing and it measured 5 1/16 th of an inch to be exact !! Works for me, but was just wondering if this happens a lot.

    There's probably some exposed stanchion when the fork is completely bottomed out. You can check by letting all the air out and compressing the fork.

    It's normal for some forks.
