Hey I got some Marzocchi EXR Comp forks (second hand) but was wondering what they are classed as? my MTB coach said that they looked like XC forks because they are very similar to the MZ Comp as they only have 105mm of travel but then why would they put XC forks on a Jump bike, as the EXR comp forks i purchased came off a Specialized P.2. Whats the difference between the MZ and EXR?
I'm not sure, but MZ are aggresive XC in my eyes.
Mz and exr are xc forks but go here, http://www.marzocchi.com/spa/mtb/?LN=UK&Sito=group and read for yourself.

They just put it under XC for liability.
wrong, they put it under xc because it is in no way capable of taking they stresses of jumpng. they really shouldnt be putting these forks on jump bikes... they are xc forks, and weak ones at that, and its dangerous to jump on these forks. they put them on jump bikes to keep the over-all price down.

Thats what I meant.
i thought you were saying they were jump forks, labeled as xc forks just to be safe... sorry, my mistake
