The spec sheet Fox sent us had a FAQ section including a question about compatibility: ' . . . it will not work on other series of 36 such as Factory, Performance Elite, or Performance.'

My guess, having taken the Z1 coil apart, but not comparing it to the above mentioned 36 models is...more

When re-reading about the "air assist bottom out control" it becomes evident that the, for a lack of the proper term, white chunk of plastic with a black o-ring thing must match the 1.275" bore of the Z1 in order for it to function as such. Question #1 answer: no, it's not.

Now for question #1.1, Is Fox making a coil conversion kit for their ever-so-popular 36? 🤔

Couple of questions:

#1, The bore measurement of the Z1 is 1.275". The bore measurement of the 36 is 1.287". Very subtle difference but a big enough difference that require each fork to have their own air shaft assemblies. Do you know if this conversion kit can be ran in 36 forks with their slightly larger bores?...asking for a friend.

#2, Some companies that offer a coil conversion kit caution that running their kits may affect the possibility for the fork to be ran back as air due to inner stanchion scratches. Any idea if this is the case with Marzocchi's coil kit?

Cheers!

Again, I could see it being better for some tracks. But 'world's better' is what I'm not so sure about.

I'll be giving it a go just because, but I'm skeptical that it is *so* much better than air. Few reasons...

1) All the Fox pros are on the standard air spring. DH and enduro. Maybe they'd never make them a coil just cause, but I have to believe if Gwin and Minnaar barked enough,...more

Jeff, I know you're probably wanting something 170mm of longer up front but I've been thinking of running an E-bike specific 36 upper on my single crown. Product testers/MTB journalists say the thicker stanchions (with the same bore as a 34) make the ... more »

Correct. But if you're stuck to a 31.8mm bar diameter, the shortest you can get the Atlas stem is 50mm (which is on the longer side of the spectrum for modern AM and enduro bikes.)

The real question is do you throw a 29" front wheel on a 27.5" frame or a 27.5" rear wheel on a 29" frame? Both have pros and cons.
