    I just clicked on a link to the Marzocchi web page. Fire-sale on 380 Forks (dual crown DH) and...


    THE 350 SERIES IS GONE!!!!!!!!!! :eek: :mad: :(

    I knew it would happen. Thought it would have been two years ago. The best all around fork in its category is gone. I wonder how long I can keep my 350 running well...

    I guess my next fork will have to be the Cane Creek Helm! (in coil, of course!)

    So now what's going on? This popped up in the banner on Vital MTB:

    https://shop.marzocchi.com/?utm_source=vitalmtb.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=vital

    Getting rid of everything (no 350s left, apparently) but "brand new" clothing.

    My guess is liquidating and ceasing production.

    I posted two months ago that they were done - well, that and two years ago. Yet they still pop up and haunt me. Damn you Fox evil overlords for killing the brand, but letting it die a drawn out and painful death.

    So you can buy a fork for a little bit of a discount.....only to not be able to find service/replacement parts a year from now.

    The seals will always be available from a third party, maybe Fox will keep the other parts in stock.

    Edit: That 320 LR might be the thing for my 12 year old's bike, too bad I'll have to replace her front wheel as well to use it, but it'll beat the snot off a cheap Suntour fork.

    JensonUSA has that C2R2 Ti DH fork cheaper than Marz's own webstore, lol. And you can spend a little more and get the better model of that XC fork too.
