    Anyone running a 2013 Zokes 55 RC3 ti 170mm?

    I'm looking to kit a Rune V2, which is going to be my 'pedal up' DH sled. I prefer coil, so it's a toss up between the 55ti or Van 170mm or maybe even Van 180mm? Opinions are awesome...

    Anyone know the clearance from axle to arch on the 55?

    14.6" accurate?

    I say go for it. no experience on a van. only have limited experience on a new to me '11 55 rc3 ti, but ill say i liked it enough to get a 66 for big days and sell my 180 float.

    In addition to being plush, it seems to do a lot better with the latter half of travel...keeping the front end more steady in the rough than my float.

    i find it a bit more fiddley to tune perfectly but in my opinion thats because it has a big range for a coil. little air in air assist goes a long way...4 pumps gives me perfect sag, and only a half a pump difference is noticeable enough to feel wrong

    66CR are a tad heavy, around 3000g I believe. It's odd they discontinued the 66 line though, but then I saw this, wow?? More info please...

    My post #733 gives you some idea. Neo 2.3's are about 702-705mm dia I think.

    Thanks for that photo. They spec'd as 372 mm arch clearance..

    Seems ~ 13 mm shorter from that pic, like 358 mm for the marzocchi 55 ?
