At last today i got my Z1dropoff fitted. Unfortunately the bad news is that i need a new brake line so for the moment i dont have a front brake ...hopefully in Friday i ll get a goodridge one delivered. I was able to test the fork on street riding back home. I slammed it at pavements up and down...and i realised that the curbs just werent there for the fork....awesome outof the box. Colossal stiffness...i almost feel riding a rigid fork when i accelerate out of the saddle...hardly any disturbing bob at all. The ETA works a bit strange for starters....instead of compressing the fork 10cm down leaving only 3cm of travel it compresses it 3cm only. The guy at the lbs told me that the valves and oil and seals are veeeery stiff and dont work properly at all and that after the break in period everything will work by the book.(is that the case? i am new to marzocchi so i dont have a clue about breakin periods). Anyhow from this small taste i got i am really impressed...its worth double the price i paid...i really hope though that the ETA will get as promised after the break in period.
Here is a crap pic...sorry for the quality.
