Which 160mm forks?
Over the last 18 mths I have tried Fox float 160 (fit) RC2’s, Lyrik 170 solo air DH’s and now running Marzocchi 55 RC3 Ti’s all on my Alpine 160, so I know the bike well and only the forks have changed. The Marz 55 RC3 Ti’s are by far the best damped of the 3, not just in plushness, but in cornering grip and the confidence boost they give. Back that up with a 3 year warranty with NO service stipulations and a price to beat the rest. They are a touch heavier than the other 2, but then I am 14.5 stone 😳Posted 6 years agoianvMember
The maz 55 rc3 ti if you have the money. For something cheaper, the x fusion vengeance feels really close to a marzocchi and is about £550 new. I would choose the x fusion over any coil rock shox I have ridden.Posted 6 years ago
Edit at 14 stone, you would probably need to replace the spring on the vengeance.doug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
I bought the 55’s RC3 Ti’s after a recommendation from Ed-O ^^^ and a wee shot of his bike. I’ve just put them onto the G-Spot after trying them on my Zesty. Really nice but they’ll suit the G-Spot better. The best thing for me is the service intervals, I was riding Fox Van’s but you try riding 6 full days a week and keeping up with the servicing on top of that… They’re slightly lighter than my Van’s too which is a bonus!Posted 6 years ago
