    wil these forks fit my bike?

    I don't know too much about front suspension, so could anyone tell me if Marzocchi 2005 bomber drop off triples forks will fit my 2005 Marin Hawk Hill? Thanks a lot

    Too much travel +

    The Hawk Hill comes with a 100mm fork. I would stick in that general range, otherwise you effect the geometry too much. I also think the Drop Off series is made for Freeride. The Hawk Hill is a cross country bike. You should be looking at Marzocchi's EXR, MX, or Marathon series forks for that bike.

    Best wishes,

    for a cross country hardtail like the hawk hill you should stick with a fork that has 80-100 millimeters of travel, its probably not a very good ideal to go above 120mm.
