    Just got this information in , im sure by then DVO will have something out.

    Marzocchi Suspension (Official Page) Hi, 66 is not in the starting official line. Some distributors will include 66 CR tapered since it's still available from my12. We should be able to add 66 in production starting from spring 2013

    Looks like it's official....

    I sure hope DVO can rewind us to where marz was in 2007 or so - I'm bummed to see them fading.

    Hopefully not fading, just rearrenging.

    From Vital MTB:

    "First of all, Marzocchi's 2013 line will be manufactured by Hodaka, who previously manufactured their rear shocks. Hodaka is a short term solution for Marzocchi, though, as they plan to create their own manufacturing plant and assembly line a few years down the road. Model year 2013 brings a lot of changes to Marzocchi's lineup, and they've reduced their range from 40 models to just 13. The new goal is to specialize in premium products rather than making a fork for every application.

    Aside from the change in manufacturers, the 888 RC3 EVO V2 (left) gets a minor upgrade internally for 2013. Based on rider feedback from their World Cup racers, they adjusted the shim stack to help keep the fork higher in its travel over high speed chatter. Be on the lookout for a completely new downhill fork and rear shock from Marzocchi in the future...

    I love the smell of the TF2 chain lube in the morning.

    Are the 888 Cr's a good set of forks?

    This all sounds promising but time will tell.

    Yes, they are very good. Some of their pro's actually prefer them to the evo v2's.

    Do you have any examples of pros that prefer the CR damper? I'm curious about that damper in the 55. I'm thinking of getting the CR model, or is it better to go for the spendier Micro Switch TA? I'm not into the travel adjuster. The CR seems less complex overall...

    Some of their freeride guys. I can't remember the names now. Schley I think was one of them.

    I really like my 55 CR. I did a bunch of days at Northstar and other trails around tahoe, pushed it pretty hard. I'd go with that over the micro switch for sure.

    What a sham. They're just having every possible manufacturer under the sun make their stuff for them? WTF is that......

    So... who knows where your parts will actually come from once you blow out a cartridge or need a new set of seals.

    Can't wait to see what DVO has in store for us.

    66 shown in this shot with Gold Race stanchions and 2013 style decals. Fingers crossed it'll be a late release for 2013.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Marzocchi will be back with a vengeance sooner than you think!

    To all the naysayers:
    Go to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News and search for Marzocchi, they are ready to return to give us the best suspension ever!

    The folks at Zokes got thrown under the bus by Suntour so they could make their own lineup faster and better by stealing the technology from Marz. The Italians will get their revenge. (Never cross guys in suits named Guido or Sal) Once they dust themselves off we'll see some great forks for all genres!

    Suntour being the mfg. for DVO has been public and well known for along time now, ever since DVO came to be. It's never been any secret.

    I'd listen to Gemini, he knows what's up. I do and learn a lot from his posts.

    This statement couldn't be any further than the truth. Some quick fact checking will tell a much different story but in the end Marzocchi will rebound and be back on top of their game in a year or so.

    Wow, did hell freeze over? Someone complemented me on a message board. I think I've failed in my internet mission.
