    Marzocchi

    What's up guys? I have a 2013 Trek Fuel EX8 and I'm thinking about replacing the stock fork with a Marzocchi. Is it worth it? Which one would you recommend? Thanks.

    Whats wrong with the Fox that comes stock on it? Both brands make fine products. The Fuel is more XC oriented so I imagine you might prefer the lighter fox to the zoke. If the build was from the frame up I would say go with what you prefer. Since you bought the complete bike my money says if it aint broke don't fix it.

    Thanks for the reply. I just came back to riding again this year since I stopped riding back in 2004 and I just noticed that the fork that came stock with the bike is not as smooth as the Marzocchi that I had before.

    Marzocchi

    Once you ride a Zoke its hard to put up with anything else. Marzocchi now makes the 44 series that's super smooth and can be found on sale at a number of online outlets. If the 44 is to small look at the 55. I went from a Marzocchi AM to a Pike to a Van 160 and nothing could match up to the feel of the AM and my 66RC2X that was on bike #2. I now run a 55 Micro Ti and its great. Marzocchi is still in the game. A little slow at this point to get into 27.5 but they are working on it.

    Seeing how this ended up in our forum, I wanted to chime in on Marz. Hangtime is right - Marz is back and we are super stoked on their current offerings. We just added new frame and fork packages to our webstore that can save you quite a bit of $ when purchasing a frame and fork together. *Please note, our Marz forks are ONLY available through us with our frame packages.
