Interesting

Marzocchi brought back a retro scheme for the Z1 in 2007 and the return of the Super T.

Agreed, I'm keeping mine kthxbye. I wish it was more adjustable, although that's my fault for buying it

Anyways, the Super T looks great. Personally, I want to try out a Super Monster T, or any decent fork with a foot of travel. It just sounds like fun...

EDIT: Personally, I like the black stanchions and white lowers combo. It doesn't fit style wise on some bikes, but on a white bike it's pertyful. I've seen it on most of Mzs high end forks, but not it's lower end ones.

Although I'm happy with black/black as well...

I've known about the Super T coming back out for about a week or so now, but I agree the z1 isnt to pretty.

Black is boring.

I love the looks of the Z1. But have you guys seen the Corsa? 80/100mm XC fork, 32mm stanchions, 2.5 lb. I bet LowCel will be all over this one!

Seriously though, I'm expecting from Zoke's track record that the 2.5 lb fork will be stiff, especially with the 32mm stanchions. Still though, only 2.5 lbs, I'd have to ride it and see.

I don't like forks that have less than 32mm stanchions.

I'm pretty sure the Z1 shown is the same as the 06 Z1 Light ETA (with the exception of the bolt-on crown).

So if you want one and would rather have white, buy the latter.
