    Dj 1

    How does a Marz DJ 1 perform? Good for trails? Absorbs bumps well? Or compresses only on fork first 4 foot drops? Always had that notion.

    The Marzocchi DJ series of forks are designed, sprung and damped for Dirt Jumping. For general trail riding they will feel harsh. They won't be very active on small chatter bumps etc., and the damper, even with lighter weight oil and set to full open, will likely be a bit on the slow side. As noted they are for Dirt Jumping, and DJ has rather different requirements for suspension fork performance than does trail riding. It will work, but it won't be a nice cushy ride.

    You mean the spring will feel harder and more tough? I don't really mind that bumpy, as long as its better than an RST launch (on the lower end model that I'm looking at) or a rigid.

    Yeah it's gonna feel more "bumpy". Definately not the best trail fork out there, but better than the RST launch or a ridged fork.
