    RC2x WC weight

    Anybody know the real world weight difference between the normal 2007 RC2x and the world cup version? I know the weights are stated on the Marzocchi site, but hey ..
    I'm just deciding between the 2 and am wondering if its worth it to hunt for the WC version, or just grab the normal one which is at my disposal.

    The 66 RC2x 07 weighs in at 100g over the stated weight, with an uncut steerer.

    Awesome forks btw.

    Yeah its the 888 i was askin bout, guess i should've mentioned that! I'm guessing the Ti springs aren't as light as stated. I'll probably go with SMT's advice, i have a chance to grab a perfect RC2x anyways, so lookin for a good WC is probably just a hassle.
    And next season (if not before even).. AVY cart!

    I bought a 888rc2x brand new in 2007 and I also researched the weight diff between the two.
    While I don't remember the actual numbers...it was not enough to get me to spend the extra couple hundred of $$.

    The "regular" is a great fork. I don't see how you would recognize the weight diff when riding.
    The WC looks nicer...but I got over it.

    my Ti spring 888 with axle, full uncut steerer tube and heavy spring weighed under 7 pounds

    I don't know what my RC2X weighed

    Yeah that's what i'm most interested in.. will the difference in unsprung weight make a difference. The 888 i'm probably grabbing (about 380$, with a complete rebuild, seals and bushings) on Tuesday has polished lowers, and has the thick 888 'stickers'.. should look good as well!




    edit. just found an old post that mentions a measly weight savings of 2oz..?

    the polished looks sweet. Did the seller strip the paint? My 888 is a grey color.
    my frame is polished...the polished lowers would look wild on my bike.
    $380 with a rebuild sounds very fair considering I paid Marz ~ $200 for the Works rebuild 2 seasons ago.

    good luck with it!

    Yeah, he services forks and did a whole rebuild and strip/polish. The fork should be as good as new.
    A polished frame AND a polished fork.. hmm, sounds blinding!
