Do any of the local bike shops carry Marz fork parts? I need a replacement RC2 cartridge. The compression adjuster is broken off the bottom of the cartridge.

I reality, I want to do a full rebuild and change the oil, seals, ect. It's a 2006 Marz RC2X fork (170mm travel I believe).

WOw, nice find Art Hog!

My Fox Floats are leaking, taking it in to a local shop in Denver tonight. The guy said that my v-brake version are no longer available, so this may be one of the last times I can get them serviced. Maybe if I have any trouble I will go to Dirt Labs in the future.

I guess your supposed to service these forks every so often??:o Mine were fine for 9 seasons with no service but maybe with a little service mixed in they might last longer..

My rims don't support disk brakes, so I have a major expense ahead of me at some point..

For Fox, particularly older Fox shocks and forks, PUSH is very good. Yes, you are supposed to service them periodically. :-) I usually change oil once a year and have the bushings replaced about every 2 or 3 years. Fox does not change stuff very often and they can be fixed or rebuilt, even really old ones.

Rim brake forks can still be found, although I think for 2013 Fox completely dropped lowers with canti bosses. I think the other brands have models that support them still, though they'll be pretty low end forks now.

Thanks for the info Dave, you are a "research guru"..

Dunno about that, been using PUSH for a long time, probably 8 years now. We have nothing but Fox forks and shocks.

I called and spoke to mike at dirt labs. He said he would look around but was doubtful that it's possible to find an rc2 cart.

I think I can salvage it for now just by making a small groove into the end where the knob used to be and then use a flat blade driver to turn the adjusted. Apparently it's a common issue and the knobs get amputated frequently. Avalanche downhill sells a cart but it's more than $400. I am not going to spend that on this bike. It's just a starter. I will rebuild the fork with new seals and change the oil but that's about it.
