    Great deal??

    I could have the Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 1 for 600$ CAD(around 550$ US).
    is it a good deal ? because I have no idea of the "REAL" price
    If you have any other ideas of suspension forks, I am currently riding Dj and street-park.

    i always check with ebay first and apparently it seems to me that $550US is kinda overpriced.

    ^ A dirt jam is definitely not the same as a DJ1, not even close. 550 sounds a little high, but stuff is a little pricey in canada.

    edit - just to clarify some... unless they've changed their numbering scheme, the lowest number is the most expensive and best quality model, so the 1 is the best, the 2 is the middle of the line and the 3 is the lowest end. Usually the 3 seems to go for about $200. The dirt jam is not good, it's a fork for complete bikes that's not much better than the RST's on some.

    Use this as a starting point to find the best price for any given bike part. It won't necessarily give you the best price but it gives you a good idea.

    I'm selling my Z1 for $150. 5" travel, 20mm thru axle. A bit old, but very well maintained and in good shape!
