Marzocchi Z1 QR20

Sorry for the small picture, Marzocchi used to be the best brand in suspension forks for a brief time around the new millennium. Their receipt for success was easy, they made motorcycle suspension for bicycles. But that also meant heavy forks. Not a problem when industry tried to sell 35 pound 5" travel freeriding bikes as CC bikes. Not everyone want to run a 4 pound suspension fork anymore, but do not argue that the old school Marzocchi forks still looks totally badass!

The Z1 QR20 fork was the top of the line fork offering 5" suspension in a single crown design requiring special QR20 front hub for stiffness. Polished it looked wicked!
