    Well this is a fine mess

    In my last thread I discussed the death of my Marzocchi Superfly fork and what to do with the Bontrager Privateer it was attached to. Well, I was cruising ebay yesterday and I saw this Marzocchi EXR Pro with less than an hour for $5.00. The poster did not seem to know (or give) any information about the fork, but thinking any fork has got to be worth more than $5.00 I bet $10.00 on it and won it for $5.50. Granted, it's a 100mm and I wanted an 80mm, buy it's certainly better than retiring the bike. Also, I don't even know if it's coil or air. Anyone know any more about this fork?

    What does it have on it as far as fiddly bits -- an air valve only? Any external knobs?

    If it's an air/oil fork, I'd definitely open it up and change the oil. If it's a spring fork, I know I've got some old Marzocchi springs lying about that I'd be happy to send to you so you can play with it a bit. And though they cost more than what you paid for it, Enduro does make seals for that bad boy.

    Again, I don't know the answers to any of your questions, because the seller only stated he had bought it several years earlier and discovered his bike had a 1" head tube. I guess I'll just have to wait until I get the fork in the mail.

    Ah, my bad. I thought you'd already received it. Guess I gotta learn to read the post first...

    why would you retire the bike? If it's an 1 1/8" fork, you have tons of options, more suited for it. Unless it's a cost thing, which is understandable. How's the crash recovery going?

    Thanks for the detective work. I guess I'm going to have to just wait till I get the fork to know how good it's going to work.

    Yes it's a cost thing and I no longer ride the bike. My recovery has been great. I been riding for the last 3 weeks and switched over to fixed gear road riding to put in some miles before the Solvang Century in March.

    Great, next time you're in California, drop by Santa Cruz and we'll tear up some demo forest singletrack; the Bonty will be your designated ride!

    It looks like a 04/05 EXR Pro . Should be made in Italy as the older Marzocchi forks were .

    UPDATE: Found a review that should belong to that fork (http://www.mtbr.com/cat/older-catego...3_1539crx.aspx)

    Well that fork should be an air fork then .

    Only because he had a thread dealing with his old Bonty that is an SS but in need of a fork. He was simply updating all of us that were following the other thread!
