    66 Rc

    After watching NWD 5 It seems as if many riders are opting to ride the single crown 66 over double crowns. Correct if I am wrong that is just what I saw. Not every person had them but many did. Are they really that good? Also which would be better and 04 Super T or an 05 66 RC?

    Well I have an 04 Big Hit Comp. Would a 170 mm work on it. I do mainly fast downhill and some freeriding.

    i would go w/ super t, just because i have it, and i like dc better, but i think that the 66 would be actually really kool on a big hit, you should try it.
    P.S. 170 mm would definitly work, it's a big hit

    I'm getting a bullit with the 66rc 170mm, should be a real winner, only thing it seems to be missing for a single crown is adjustable travel. I might prefer a Fox 36, but weight isn't that big a deal. Not to mention the 36 is a hard to get item.

    People are opting for SC because they open more options. Such as barspins, X-ups etc. In having a SC they have a much bigger bag of tricks. As for you, it is personal preferance on which you would rather have, i have personally never ridden a 66 so i am not sure if it is as stiff as a DC but if it is i dont know why you wouldent got for it, same dampening ( 66= hscv and Super T= ssv+ hscv ) just more options like i said in the SC, your choice...

    Well I do not do tricks like that so that is not a factor. I want a fork that will handle fast runs and some big drops.

    90% of all riders who have dc donīt need them.

    I've had a pair of 66 rc's for about a month now. They are simply oresome! They scream strength and make some DC's look like girlie men (to quote Arnie). Coupled with my Fox DHX 5.0 on the rear and I'm smiling like a crazy man all the way down.

    If you want a single-crown fork with 7" of travel that sits about 0.25" lower (axle-to-crown) than the 8" 888, then the 66 will be perfect for you.

    I think the 6" version makes sense, or if you specifically want to do huge x-ups on a DH bike I suppose the 7" is a good call. I'd go Super T.

    James - why Super T over 7 inch 66?

    I'm in the market for a 7 inch fork to put on my hardtail Banshee. From what I've seen people apparently feel the 35mm stanchions on the 66 more than compensate for the single crown/steerer, as opposed to the 32mm stanchions & double crown on the SuperT. I'm about 230lbs, and am looking to replace my '02 Z1 so I can start going bigger, particularly urban, and for those 5-8 trips to plattekill in the summer. Will the SuperT be stiffer (the old Z1 is kind of noodly on landings, which I think is a bad thing)? Thanks - Kelly

    Ride height, my man. The 7" 66 is very tall, as I mentioned above it's almost as tall as the 8" 888 with stock crowns. The Super T is much more reasonable, so for your Morphine you're looking at about 66 - 67' with the Super T ('04) vs 64 - 65' with the 170mm 66.
