    rear shocks on the bazooka and setup

    is the DHX good for rear shocks on the 02 bazooka or another particular shock, or should i just stay with the marz?

    and is the 66rc the best fork for it?

    well, probably 90% of the people here are unaware that Marzocchi even makes rear shocks. The DHX is good (do a search) and features damping technology the Bazooka doesnt, but you'll be hard pressed to find a comparison here.

    i dont think there ever was one, it just looks like it screws in. No mention in the tech manual either

    well these ones have been around for a long time so i doubt they'll be put out. However Marz was supposed to be working on a new platform which was hinted to be offered. But if they dont think theres room on the market, then i doubt they will over here.

    so is it DHX over the marz? ive read a lot of stuff about how good the DHX, but its pretty hard to compare coz there a no reviews of the marz and i havent tried to put a DHX on the sintesi(coz i cant borrow one coz no one has a DHX with that much eye to eye) or put the marz on another bike

    maybe there was a remote reservoir prototype version that had a ball joint. A ball joint on a piggyback makes no sense whatsoever; if it gets moved out of place it could get crushed into the frame....great joke to play on your friends.

    well it would make some sense if it were a joint that locked in some places
