    Anyone put an '07 adjustable 66 (140-180mm) on an evo yet?

    I know someone tried a 05 66 and the front is way too high and it also raised the BB too high. It jacked up the handling too much.

    He also put a 06 66 on which has shorter AC height which was enough to bring the front down to almost normal height and maintain the handling. I loved that combo.

    05 66 AC 595mm
    06 66 AC 555mm

    40mm is a big difference, If 07 has almost the same AC height around 555mm so it should be pretty good on the EVO. It would make the EVO a kick A$$ FR bike.

    I don't think the '07 66s are out yet to the mainstream public.

    The Marzocchi website lists the A to C at 565mm, so I'm guessing that's at 180mm of travel. That's not too bad, really, and with 40mm of travel adjust, this fork could fit a lot of different bikes...moment

    FWIW...the 06 66SL has the same 40mm adjustability but requires the use of a low pressure pump.
    Nothing to see here.

    Our intern Oliver put a 66 on his EVO and uses it as a trail and DH bike. Here's a pic of one of our EVOs with a z1 light.
