    Marzocchi roco air rc wc

    I am thinking about putting one of these on my 2010 Jedi. I like the idea of being able to change the air spring at anytime. Has anybody had any experience with this shock. Price point has them on sale for 300.00 which seams like a really good price as long as it performs well.

    Do it.
    Ran one on mine for a year loved it, it was like cheat I g on the nasty stuff it tracked like a razor in the chop. It suffers from some wallowing jumping wise but not enough to warrant not using it by any means. Add air and it will jump better lol.

    Good shock drops weight and sticks like glue in chunk.

    Do you think I would have any issues with it because of me being a heavier rider..I usually weigh in around 220 with gear.

    I have one on my compulsion. I turned the rebound up for jumping, and it feels great. I don't ride too many rocks, but when I do, it handles great for 5" of travel.

    I ran one for 3 years and didn't have any issues with it. Mine was a 2008 model and it only had 2.5" of stroke instead of advertised 2.75. So I had .5 inch less travel on my frame. Not sure if newer one's fixed that. Other than that no complaints.

    I just got a Vivid Air on my new rig. I hope it holds up as well as the Roco.

    I have a WC air on my lucky, and its like night and day compared to dhx5c.

    I will agree that it feels awesome on the rough and landing is like being dropped in a fluffy pillow.

    However it does tend to wallow when you get on the gas and is not very "poppy" when jumping, debating pulling it appart this winter and adding a smidge more LSC on the shim stack, or swap out the WC compression adjuster assembly for a TSTR LSC type assembly.

    I rode a Roco Air WC for a season and it was a great shock. It do require more service than a coil shock though. As already stated, it is extremely wallowy. You should seriously consider beefing up the LSC stack. High speed has a nice range externally adjustable, for DH it's more useful than a LSC adjuster to be honest. It's sensitive (for being an air shock), linear, ramps up nicely in the end (run the piggy back pressure on maximum!) and doesn't have a lot of trouble with heat. It gets really hot after a while, yes, but it doesn't affect performance that much. A good shock.

    How hard is it to adjust the LSC stack?

    The stacks can be tuned internally if I remember correctly Ronnie and I talked about it a few years ago.
