I get by with a little help from my friends...
Hey fellow Ventena'ers,
I just bought some new toys for my El Chamuco( Marzocchi AM SL 1( 20mm) and a Chris King Dreadset) and was wondering if the travel would be too much for the bike? I believe it has 160mm max with ATA if I need to scale it down. The other question I have is what is a good starting point for rebound( I weigh 175lbs-ish) clicks?
That'll be a great fork for Chamuco Front end may feel a tad tall at full extension but shouldn't bother you much. In all liklihood you'll ride it a bit lower for climbs and extend it full for descents. I rode a Chamuco with a Z150 which isn't too much shorter than that SL1 (which you can lower with ATA).

Have fun !
