    I have a 2008 55 ATA Micro and it had a lot of problems, but since it received a 2009 ATA cart, new TST micro cart and an O-ring upgrade it has been awesome. It's also been very reliable.

    Based on the fact that I almost never here people complaining of the 2009's and that most of those who got there 2008's fixed with proper 2009 parts, I'd say Marzocchi got it right. Maybe that makes you comfortable enough to buy one.

    I'm happy with my fixed 2008 and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a 2009 if I needed another one.

    Just reviving an old thread to see how people are going with the 2009 55 ata micro's?

    There are some great deals on these, but the 08's obviously had serious issues.

    Anyone running these that can comment?

    Cheers

    Well I have an 888 ATA and it is a pretty awesome fork. ATA is actually a very simple design and if it ever gives you any crap here's a good thread on how to fix it:

    TST Micro I have no experience with though. I know you can mod TST2 fairly easy so and I would assume that TST Micro is near the same engineering.
