Why can I not find ANY information about the Mz-comp fork? Is it just a huge typo that everyone does (mx-comp > mz-comp) ? Can anyone help me out?
02-13-05, 10:50 AM
!! It's on the marzochhi website for the tech manual. The reason that it's neglected is because it's a terrible fork, under the marzocchi name, which isn't even made my marzocchi. It's a decent OEM fork, but terrible compared to the rest of the market. The adjustments dont do ********.
EDIT: Sorry, MZ RACE ADJUSTMENTS DONT DO JACK.

What does "Comp" mean?
02-13-05, 11:03 AM
comptetion? I don't know. Frankly, it doesn't really matter. The next one up is called race, which is what I have.

Ok, The Bruiser 2 comes with a Mz-comp fork, and if it's made for Xc and marathon, then why is it on a DJ/freeride bike?
02-13-05, 11:08 AM
Why? Because it's cheap and probably one of the strongest oem forks at the time.

ok, I'm gunna sound really stupid now, but what is OEM ?
02-13-05, 11:14 AM
It's basically components that come with bikes and are not sold in the after market unless the shop traded the parts off a bike. Original Equipment Manufacturer is OEM.

The MZ Comp has a real springy feeling to it...versus some others I've felt that are more spongey

best you're gonna get included on a bike unless you go up a few hundred more though! (but the rest of your component package component gets upgraded to for maximum efficiency)

I also have a bruiser 2 and i was wondering what a good fork for it would be? im looking for something thats not too expensive with a big enough improvement to make it worth spending the extra money. Also, what type of shocks are the mz-comps, as far as the damping, i was told that they werent oil filled so what are they.
02-21-05, 07:50 PM
I don't think they have dampening at that price point. A good fork? For what? DJing? Xcing?
02-21-05, 08:38 PM
I think you can find the fork under OEM section.
02-21-05, 08:55 PM
A good DJ for would be a marz. Dirt Jumper or z1, they are abit expensive, but worth it in my opinion.
my mz makes funny noises... i think im about to run it into the ground
02-21-05, 10:13 PM
I have a question...
Is this fork air or coil?
02-21-05, 11:16 PM
I used to have one and I hated it. I now have a Z1, but its getting upgraded by zokey to QR 20.
02-21-05, 11:33 PM
I think the MZ Comp is actually elastomers too
02-21-05, 11:52 PM
yeah.. it's coil/MCU elastomer. I have one myself.
02-22-05, 12:45 PM
thanx, i was also wondering how much i would have to spend to get a good shock like the dirt jumper or z1 that was suggested. I am freeriding and dirt jupming so i was wondering whether it would be better to get a freeride fork or a dirt jumping fork
your looking for a fork...not a shock, and about $300 for dirtjumper 3, and around $4-500 for the z-1
02-22-05, 01:52 PM
You can also find alot of used DJ IIIs too. Ive seen 2004 models as low as $100
02-22-05, 04:52 PM
O yeah my bad with the shock mixup, i used to race quarter midgets(go-karts) and must have had schocks on my mind. Would u recommend gettin a used fork, is it a safe bet to get one?
get a new one, cause a fork can look good but be totally screwed on the inside... so best bet is new
02-22-05, 08:10 PM
alright thats what i thought, thanx
