 i have thease on my mongoose bdd (black dimond doubble) there fantastic forks i think they lack cable routing but if you have some zip ties floating arround then its not a problem. i like the ajustments you can make to it i like to run my rebound super slow for big drops,jumps and large rock gardens i allso have the compression usually medium.there just a fantastic fork realy.

 I tried my friend's bike which has a 66, This fork is just Uber Plush, and uber stiff maybe i should get one for my AM/FR bike... really nice fork. worth Getting, Sad that in 2013 Marzocchi took it out of their Fork line... ://

 Great fork and has soo many adjustments. Perfect for hitting hugeass jumps too Huge decents down the mountain. Really light and cheap (i picked it up for 300$). The only problem that i had was the top adjustment knobs so the top red and the other side were too high and the black top cap scraped and the red wouldnt even move past the frame so it was pretty much like having a dual crown fork. and that was on a 2003 kona stinky frame design. Other than that it was a magnifcint fork 5/5

 I've got the 2007 model, which as far as I'm concerned is the last year marzocchi were worth bothering with, still they seem to have picked up thier game again, and if its anything like the '07 it'll be a stunning fork!

 Awesome fork! Super burly, super plush, super adjustable. My only dislike is the quick release but other than that awesome fork. It's not light but thats just how Marz works. Theyre a little heavy but they are well built.

 So dependable....so strong. I honestly feel like there's no need for a triple crown anymore...toss it on your 6in bike for that extra downhill edge with the 7in it offers. So solid!!

 massive single crown, extremely heavy for a single crown but very reliable on durability and perfomance.

adjustment knobs comes off easily, lost the compression knob and the top left pin while riding.

 I have these on my 2008 Kona Stinky, easily adjustable and look sweet as, Use them mostly for dh and theres no need for Triple clamps when you got these and you can still do x ups etc

 I love my 66's. They absorb anything I throw at them and beg me for more. They are nice and sturdy for when I take those fast hard turns and perfect for jumping the big jumps.

 these forks track really well and i find are very supple on the trails. they take the big hits nicely, they are not as nice as totems but better value, a quality fork

 Very nice fork. Soft suspension but not to soft. No cons to mention. I would recommend the fork to any freerider. Marzocchi is da bomb

 Alot of travel;more versatile & lighter than a dual crown. Have it on a freeride bike
that is also used for downhill. (1.5" steer tube)

 Awesome fork, only thing I run. Yeh, there is lighter, but these are so smooth, so stiff and confidence inspiring. Have a 2010 just brought a 2012 for a new build.

 Great performer, except that mine was an OEM model that I had to warranty to remedy some play in the crown. Came back buttery smooth though!

 Great fork! Just got one for my azonic B52 and it feels amazing! It feels so so so close to my evo 888 so moving from bike to bike is a very comfortable transition.

Marzocchi MTB 66 Rc3 (MSRP $999) — "We started it. We dominate it. Marzocchi was the first to have the vision for a lightweight, long travel, single crown fork with double crown performance. The 66 feels like a 888 and is distinctly a Marzocchi."

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Release Date 2009
Price $999
Weight 3241 g
Color Options Grey
Travel 180 mm
Travel - refers to the distance the wheel can move in respect to the frame. Typically measured in millimeters, most forks range from 80 to 203 mm of travel
Spring Coil
Crown Single
Rebound Yes
Rebound - is how quick your fork returns to a fully extended position after being compressed. Almost all after-market forks feature external rebound adjustment for easy fine tuning.
Stanchion material 38mm Alloy Stanchions
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping Rc3
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options 20mm
Compression Hi-Lo Auto Compression Adj
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
