    Marzocchi Mz-Comp

    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?

    !! 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.

    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?

    Why? Because it's cheap and probably one of the strongest oem forks at the time.

    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.

    I don't think they have dampening at that price point. A good fork? For what? DJing? Xcing?

    I think you can find the fork under OEM section.

    A good DJ for would be a marz. Dirt Jumper or z1, they are abit expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

    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
