    Marzocchi 07 or 08 888 ata

    I am trying to put together a bike and i am on the wall about using either a 07 or 08 888. the bike will be use for DH and some racing, with a rider weight of around 230lbs. Not too worried about the money, just trying to figure out which one to get. i keep reading a lot about how much better the 07s and 08s are so i am just confused
    please help

    for your size......you would be better off with a coil......888 WC or RC3

    If you got MONEY then roll a 2008 888 RC3 World Cup. Its pretty light and has a Ti Coil.

    I too was going to get a 888 SL ATA, but I decided against it because apparently the system has a few kinks that need to get worked out.

    Yup, Coil all the way. SMT is absolutely right. If you're over deuce get a big a$$ bike and a big a$$ fork.

    Wait a second arn't the new 888 rc3's like almost 8 pounds? or 6.98 + another .75 with oils and other things? Thats not very light compared to my team which is almost a pound lighter. Idk just what ever.

    uh huh; did marzocchi tell you that? Believe it when the statistics roll in, not the pre-release hype.
    To the O.P. don't buy an SL ata model of either year. Get a coil version. Stay away from ATA!

    Sweet, bag included. I like to carry my forks to races in canvas bags as well. Kind of like guns, but boom. Fork.
