Early days so far, but the initial signs are very good.
The 55CR is a very reasonable weight as well as being acceptably stiff and well dampened. For the money, they're unbeatable, there's nothing else that comes close. In terms of adjustments, you get a useful amount of rebound and compression range to suit most people. While there's no lockout, you can adjust the compression damping to stiffen things up, but with a 160mm+ Enduro fork, a lockout is a feature I've rarely used anyway.
There are a couple of minor niggles though. Firstly, the 20mm axle is fiddly compared to a Maxle. Secondly, there are only two options for adjusting the travel - either you leave them at 170mm or you install the 20mm spacer and drop to 150mm, which isn't great when fitting to a 160mm (max) frame.
Once set up though, the CR certainly feels Marzocchi old skool plush and doesn't feel excessively divey whilst maintaining a very linear feel. You can tinker with oil levels in the air spring if you wish - as with any air fork - but they feel spot on for me straight out of the box.
