 Brett Rheeder "Hi, Fox, for my next build can you do me some 36's in kashima"
Fox: "Of course"
Rheeder: "Nah, I don't think you get me, the whole fork in Kashima; stanchions, lowers, crown..."
Fox: ….
Rheeder: "f*ck it! Take my frame and do that too"

 How is it that Fox can't match the Kashima on its forks, shocks and seatposts but it can match Brett's entire freaking bike?

 I'll get negative props like brappjuice but he is exactly correct. Its paint!!!! Most likely a buffed raw frame sprayed with a tinted clear coat. Kashima is a plate process that will have natural color variations. I'd like to explain more more the fact brappjuice got neg props says yall won't even understand anyway

 I was wondering, why don't any of the Marzocchi sponsored riders spec like some older DJ3 or smthing on their bikes.
I get it, the 27.5 Bomber Z1 is pretty new, but doesn't a 26in fork /w 2 more cm of travel make more sense for idk footjams and stuff?

I mean Boggs has an older bike?
  • 7 9
 The last Marzocchi with DJ in the name that was actually a good DJ fork was produced in 2004. Then they made the 4X which was ok. Other DJ forks were rubbish. How’s that even a thing? When Argyle with air spring came out it was like a breath of fresh air. Then people started lowering Fox 36 and then Pike DJ came, it’s just that why the hell did it not have the RC damper and was cheaper. I am
Currently super happy with my lowered 34 26”
  • 3 1
 @WAKIdesigns: still have and use my air sprung Argyle on my .243 - one of the most under rated forks ever, still runs fantastic

 @WAKIdesigns: I had the purple 2010 and It was awesome the 06 dj2 I had was pretty decent heavy but smooth now I've also got a newer dj1 and besides the weight it feels fine what's your problem with them. The dj3 shouldn't even be in the comparison because nobody elts makes a third grade fork.
  • 1 0
 Because they weigh 15lbs, newer forks are so much lighter.
  • 1 0
 @emptybe-er: 15? I know your being hyperbolic but It's around a pound. And I'm not sure it's worth the 750$ price tag also most of the dj forks I run into are setup so stiff by the rider that I wouldn't put much weight behind their opinions on performance I.E what would someone know about the performance of a fork if all they do is over pump it with air and slow the rebound down. A dj fork is pretty simple. smooth strong at the lowest weight possible and I give you that pound means a lot but I feel people over hype stuff sometimes.
  • 1 0
 @loganflores: I’m talking about the old, Italian made, pre M arch dj’s. Reliable, smooth and also very heavy- overbuilt unless you’re really heavy or non-stop 50/50 casing landings. I agree, most people run them very stiff so as not to rob any pop, mostly needed to take the edge off landings. Dj fork performance is about weight and strength, being reliable; doesn’t need to be the most buttery/have sophisticated damping. If it were me I’d probably find a used 36 and lower it. I lowered a 36 van (coil) because I had one. A float (air) would be better. If you are a lighter rider the 32 would work, they're surprisingly strong. Lowered 32’s worked great for Kyle Strait and plenty of other’s. I have a 140ish lb friend who absolutely tortured his lowered 32 for yrs on contest-sized jumps, and he continued riding it even after the stanchions started creaking in the crown and it never gave up.
  • 1 0
 @emptybe-er: I'm looking at one of those old forks now I've got 3 or so. Surprisingly not as heavy as people make them out to be 6 pounds an some change very smooth very strong easily to swap stuff out. What's weird is in seventeen years we lost two pounds and gained a bit of adjustment/smoothness that most people don't even use. Also if you set one up right you only need one spring and air pressure so that drops the weight even closer to 6 lbs I'm not denying that two pounds doesn't matter its huge but I was a bit disappointed when I swapped out an old dj2 for a new dj1 a few years ago when they went on sale on their website and only lost one pound off my bike. When the thing showed up I saw right away that it was basically an 05 dj1 with some weight shaved after riding it a few weeks I realized it's exactly what it needs to be smooth strong durable. I wish it were lighter but that's my only complaint I just didn't find a pound to be worth double the cost.

 @loganflores: I agree weight certainly isn’t everything, but a lowered float 36 is stiffer than a dj and just over 4 lbs
  • 1 0
 @emptybe-er: I appreciate the argument good option if you can get ahold of a 36 for a decent price but otherwise trying to upgrade a crap fork from a Pinkbike deal or something is pretty pricey especially for a grom or newbie or anyone who can't afford the around 300$ Price tag of a new fork. And used dj forks are harder and harder to find.
  • 1 0
 @loganflores: they are hard to find and so are 26” 36’s. I would never buy a used dj, if the steel steer tube isn’t bent already it will be after casing a jump. That’s probably why you didn’t save much weight going from an old dj2 to a dji, steel steer tube is heavier

 Yeah...the rear dropout is different

 @kymtb0420: and Head tube to accomodate the gyro
  • 1 0
 @mikemax99: I think thats an add-on piece. At most, they just added the two mounting holes on the headtube. The rear dropout is completely different than any Trek ticket ever produced.
  • 1 0
 @kymtb0420: The headtube is actually very much different than stock one, also the geo looks little bit different too, shorter seattube.
  • 1 1
 @tulipanek: Yeah...it's a pro bike, so of course the geo is a little different. But--most of the other bikes have a similar gyro. I'm more interested in the noticeable difference---like the dropouts and the chain tensioners. What are you all seeing that I'm not????

 @onemanarmy: he said in an instagram post that is indeed a 26 inch fork,and also,if you compare his fork to the one on brandt's bike you'll see that the wheel is way closer to the arc of the fork
