New MBR has the latest 140mm zochis whatever they are. Said they work quite well but still coil with air assist and limited choice of springs plus faffing like you have to full remove the rebound knob to adjust air pressure. Their conclusion was, heavier and dont work as well as 32's but who knows what the 55's are like...... 36's are a known quantity and should be fine as long as you do the foam rings, 2yr warranty in the EU on other bits.

Haven't tried the Zochis but the 55 range got a right slateing in all the reviews I've read, haven't read anything about this years though. My 36 Van's are fantastic though, but you've got to do some regular maintenance to keep them tip top, unlike me who now need new stantions :Smile

Per MBR there's a 3 year warranty on all bombers so 55s covered by that

Weight of 55s still high even with Ti I've got old 66s which I had to buy in a hurry when bust other fork in alps  and they are good but very heavy, old 888s were also very heavy

On basis of 44 review verses 32 Float
there's a way to go for them

Andy , thats last years zoochis, this year they have gone back to open bath and are supposed to be much more reliable.

My 36s are under a year old and have slight stantion wear, if you get fox your have to keep on top of regular oil and seal cleaning.

Id be tempted to try the zoochis.

If the Zocchis of 2010 are anyhting like the Zocchis of old I would have a pair without hesitation. Zero maintenance forks and a pleasure to use. I did everything I could to ruin my old Bombers (never cleaned or serviced) and they still worked perfectly 8 years later.
