    Slayer Fork

    Mine came with Marzocchi EXR Supra. A friend told me i should get rid of it and buy a higher level Marz or a Fox. Not really wanting to spend the dough right now, just dropped 2/3 of the nest egg on the bike...what do others use have for forks on their slayers? I am only 115lbs. thanks.

    Dude, you're a light weight! I'm not up on the recent 'zokes. However, I have the '02 Bomber z-1. This fork takes everything I throw at it. Theres been many times I should have gone over the front but haven't thanks to this fork. It does have the compress option, but I'll only use that on long, 3000 ft. climbs. Overall, you should be fine with what you have. I would compare specs on what you have versus what you think you need. If you're more into free riding, which this bike will handle, you may want to upgrade. More into XC? Stick with what you have.

    I've got a Zokes Z1 SL with ECC. This fork totally rules on this bike.

    i'm running an '02 psylo on mine. it's fine, although i'm going to upgrade later this year. i'm going to see what happens with a 5.5" travel fork like a nixon or pike.
