 marzocchi arnt garbage... my 66's are probably the best fork iv owned yet!
  • + 13
 Marzocchi used to be the best when they were made in Italy (through 2007). Then they started making them in Taiwan, and they redid all their designs to try and be lighter and have more competitive features, but now they are garbage. I dread the loss of the good old Marzocchis of the past. Rockshox, (along with all of SRAM), are really stepping up their game and making amazing forks now.

 I had an 09 44. Began malfunctioning in less than a season of 5.5" type riding. Sent it in, completely repaired, broken again in less than 2 months. I bought a Rockshox Revelation and it feels awesome, is a half pound lighter with 10 more mls.

 To be honest this video is a joke. Your a mug for making it and obviously have too much time on ur hands.

This sport being very small and badly financed, u then and go show kona bikes snapping, anyone getting into riding who is thinking of buying a kona (alot of people start with kona bikes) is going to think actually, im not gonna spend all this money on a bike which will brake, maybe ill do something else. You may think it doesnt matter but every little bit helps.

I think this video should be deleted.

 i totally agree with you man just because you see konas breaking all the time doesn't mean konas are crap..... like olynch said konas are great beginner bikes

 Alright then, lets pay 999$ for a brand new Kona Shonky.
Or.. we could get a blk mrkt three57 for 50$ more.
Or.. an atomlab trailking for 1100$.
Same price but quality is a huge difference.

 Maksimbike, dont get involved if you have nothing relevent to say. The two bikes u named and completely different bikes. Go to school and learn something then come back to me.

 the most pointless video i have ever wasted time watching. think you need to get a life mate ! try riding a bike before you make videos and chat shit about them. you dont have half the skils the kona designers do.....
  • + 1
 well towers08, u must not of rode to many forks before that 66, i switched them out for a totem and its like night and day
  • + 0
 totems may be better, but man 66s ride nice!

 well, when your an idiot and you take a free ride designed frame from the top of a 9 set of stairs to a flat landing you deserve to have a bloody chin, your frame snapped, and your balls removed, so what....

 HOLY FUCK SOME OF YOU GUYS FAILED IN LIFE FOR SURE IF SOME BODY COMES INTO THE SPORT AND BUYS A KONA AND IT BRAKES ITS NOT THE GUY WHO MADE THE VIDS FAULT ITS KONAS FOR RIPPING PEOPLE OF KONAS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL THE BRAKE THAY ARE SLOW AND ...WELLL JUST FAIL FOR BIKES....KONA FACTORY SHOULD BE BURNT DOWN

  • + 0

 There is no frame indestructible
Some ones more dificult than others Wink
  • + 1
 All those were older than 2007

 some of the reason for that guys frame snapping is from his retarded hucking style. NEVER land back wheel first when you hav a full suspension bike especially on flat!!1
  • + 2
 Never land back wheel first? Thats the most retarded thing I've ever heard. Do you suggest landing front wheel first then?
  • + 1
 no dont huck to flat and slap ur front wheel and expect ur bike to hold up.
  • + 1
 hmm that seems to make alot of sense lol
  • + 2
 when you ride flat always land on your back wheel it helps take some of the pressure of the bike...
  • + 1
 crunchy!

 three words for ya....never buy konas

 KONA gonna kill you Bro!
