    Understand that if you broke it freeriding, dirt jumping, downhilling, or doing anything similer, that it shouldn't be warrentied.

    The EXR is not a freeride fork, it's not a DH fork, it's not a dirt jumping fork. It's a mild XC fork (like a RS pilot or Manitou 6).

    The fault lies with the company that made your bike and speced the fork. Marzocchi sells OEM forks to the bike manufacturers, and what they do with the forks after that is up to them, unfortunatly we are seeing a lot of bikes with inadaquate forks these days. It brings the price down to 400 or 600, as with the Giant STP 3 and 2 that we sell in our shop, but the fork isn't designed for the same kind of riding that the bike is, and it's simply a time-bomb if you are going to do drops, freeriding, dhing, jumps, etc....

    Well, you might be sheiße out of luck, Marzocchi will tell you that you weren't using the fork for it's intended application, and Specialized will try to pass the buck and say "call marzocchi". It's going to suck either way.

    Manitou 6's are fun. I had one on my 02 Rockhopper when I started riding and did some fun 8stair drops to flat on it.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    I have a EXR comp, yes it sucks.
    you didnt break it yet?
    Mine hasent broke yet either, but when/if it does it wont be under warranty beacuse its not meant for what we do to it.
    I want that stupid thing to break i hate it.
