    Just curious to see a general idea of what every body is running. Feel free to comment as to why you think yours is superior to others offerings.

    888 because it has more stickers and that makes you faster.

    Currently running the Fox 40 and like it a lot. I've also had a couple of Marz 888s an 04 and 06 and they were flawless, no experience with the others.

    In my town, we got 2 of us running shivers, and 1 running a domain... Love them shivers, stoked for the emerald to come out. I'll be wanting one.

    Running a 888 rc3 evo the last 2 years with no problems. But will most likely be switching to a DVO within the next year.

    I've owned everything on that list. Even the "other" as I had a Kowa.

    Boxxer R2C2 - been a very well performing fork to date and the price was half of what I could get a 40/888 for - otherwise I might be riding something different.

    Agreed! I've been running Dorado Pro for 2 years and love it. Zero problems.

    As I mentioned I've owned them all and I'd rate them this way:

    1) 3-way for the Dorado/40/888 - They all have a slight advantage in their own way, personal preference.

    4) Boxxer
    5) Kowa
