    Fork time

    I'm getting tired of the Domain on my 06 RFX. It takes hits pretty well, but sucks over high speed chatter. I noticed that Jenson has the Marzocchi 55 ETA for a good price. Has anyone here tried one? I like the ETA feature. It is a coil shock with tst micro (whatever that is), and it's 160mm. Seems like it might be a good choice, but I can't find any info on one.

    Thanks for any info.

    Get a Van, TST sucks till next year, looks like the only viable option this year I can see, still not without issues, but the lest of what I can see from my extensive 8 month research of bs

    Having ridden my spot with both the 55 ATA and the 36 Talas - I preferred the 36.
    Nothing to see here.

    Hell no, you don't want tst micro for best bump absorption. They are making a 55 though with RC3 now, and you can order the ETA cartridge for it if you want later, I don't know what the eta (timeline) is on it being available though.

    I have the 66 with RC2, it's pretty good in that respect, but there are better dampers out there, on the other hand there isn't much with better bottom-out control, so it keeps me happy.

    I rebuilt my TST micro, and finally found the correct oil wt's and heights for the ETA. I throw it on now and again. I kinda like it now. Of course it took me months to get there, but I got a plush 66 at a killer discount for my troubles. Zoke is working hard for '09. I may regret saying that they may actually pull it together. Tom has a great sense for what needs to happen. It took a few really beating him up on the boards for him to crack, but he has seen the light

    i think the 66 rc2x of old would rock on the rfx. I just started rockin one on my 5.5" pack. We are getting along quite well so far. Travel adjustability is pretty nice. I am coming off a 36vanilla. IMO, travel adjustability is what the 36 vanilla is lacking...a lyric would be nice option. especially if it has RS totem like qualities.
