    Fork question

    I am a clyde that rides some AM and XC. I am currently riding a 2008 Devinci remix SL5 with a fox 32 f120 up front and a fox rp23 in back. I want to upgrade to a 20mm front fork, what would be a good way to go? I am looking at a 2009 marz 55r that i can get for a good price. Any suggestions, thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

    I weigh 330# and can keep up with the non clydes in my group.


    thanks
    Ron

    I'm only about 250 lb. with gear and I have an 08' 55 and so far so good. I love the adjustability, and plushness. Only have about 150 miles on it so far though.

    Thanks for the reply Tahoe. Do you find that it bottoms out at all being so plush? Anyone else?

    How about a Lyrik U-turn with an upgraded spring? Its a mighty stiff fork and with a stiffer spring you should be good to go. Besides, the tool free 20mm axle is da bomb.
    All you need is love... but Scotch'll do in a pinch.

    Thank you for the replies everyone.

    How about a 2007 Fox Float 36 RC2 ? This is an air fork which i believe would be better than coil.
