2006 66 SL or new Domain 318
Iím looking at a new fork for my Iron Horse 7 point and can get a 2006 66SL or a Domain 318 for good prices. The bike is ridden mostly at a few local freeride parks and Whistler.
Which would you choose?
Pros to Domain
- 180mm travel
- Super easy to work on
- Can slightly tune damper (mod here Opening up the Domain 318 Integrated Speedstack)
Cons to domain
Pros to 66
- Old school Marzocchi goodness
- Good quality damper (rc2)
Cons to 66
- 170mm travel
- older needs service
- heavy for an air fork
I'd say go with the 318. I have a 2006 66 SL and it performs VERY well, but develops stiction in the Doppio cartridge very easily and the maintenance of such cartridge is a bit PITA.
I would try to find a used 66 rc2x
Id get the 66 SL, the purchase a RC3 Cart from marzocchi and drop in there in place of the RC2 cart
One word = Awesome
I'd love to do your mod to my fork, but I'm not quite as daring with suspension tinkering as you are.
