Review: Marzocchi Bomber Z1 Fork
Yes! The Z1 was my first "real" AM fork - matched up with a Heckler. After hucking rigid and XC rigs for years, that move up made me feel like superman. I can still remember calling Zoke and talking to Ronnie on the phone about set up. Next came the Super T.

Ask Pinkbike: Coil Shocks on Trail Bikes, Changing Fork Travel, and Drivetrain Upgrades
@Happymtbfr: @Happymtbfr: yeah, you can't throw a coil on just any frame. But, a coil properly matched with a frame with a progressive leverage curve is magic. My trail bike is 150/135mm with coil on both ends. Best riding bike I ever owned. Claws its way up anything, sticks to everything in the way down. Running that CC Inline on my bike and its better than you ever think. It's a more competent set up than my prior air sprung 160/160mm. It's not for buffed out tracks, but for rugged chunk it the way to go.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
FTDs are a godsend on our old school DH. It's fast, steep, rocky, and slick where you need both traction and rim protection. And yes, I run them with the heaviest DH tires I can find.

The World's Longest DH Bike: Isak Leivsson's Pole Machine 200 - Fort William World Cup 2018
@coadymacmillan: They can use two smaller, thinner tubes - one on each side of the shock. This is said to give the same strength at the same weight, but the tubes themselves become more prone to damage being thinner.

@Asmodai:This is incredibly clever and consistent. The measures of weights and distance are actually tied together.

Review: MRP Ribbon Coil Fork
I had to talk with MRP about this myself before I could wrap my head around it. It functions similarly to a HSC adjustment. Actually I'd say it has quite a pronounced effect on preventing bottom out, but doesn't seem to create much high speed damping early in the travel - which is good in theory at least. I like the fork. It works well. If it remains smooth and is easy to service I'll be a happy camper. The review mimics what I've felt about the fork for the most part. What I noticed most about the fork is its "composure" with fast hard descents. Can't say it feels a whole lot smoother/plusher, but it does feel more "controlled". I know that is pretty subjective, but it does let me ride faster. I may be all wet, but my theory on air forks is the rebound coming out of deep travel on a highly progressive air spring is too much for the rebound damper to handle at that point in travel and that creates a less controlled, less damped feeling.
