    What fork is this?

    What fork is this? The guy says it's a old QR20, but I'm skeptical for some reason. Mainly the arch. What do you guys think it is?

    When in doubt, style it out.

    Oh, well now that you've cleared that up, do you know what it actually is, or is this guy right? I've never seen a single crown marzocchi fork with an arch like that.

    Ok sorry that last one was typed in a hurry, older Marz forks had arches like the ones in the link you posted sure what year they stopped, before 2001 though. Let me see if i can find a link for you

    Yea, that is legit, though I am not current on used sus fork prices. I suspect you'd need something like a thru-axle for that.

    Oh, and I think 2003 was when they switched to the 'M' arch.

    Wrong, 2001 was the first year for the M arch, was just updated in 2003.

    I thought the 'M' was added to the arch in 2003 and from 2001-2003, the arch looked "modern" but had not 'M'....

    2001 had the m arch, just not as profound as the 2003+'s had.
