Kinda new to posting on this board but I've been lurking...heheheh.
Anyhow, given the following choices for a fork, what would be your opinion and why? Personally, I'm leaning toward the 2004 Marz Z1 Drop Off 1 but I would like to hear other's opinion.
(BTW, this will be my first "trail/freeride" bike...currently, I'm riding a 2001 NRS w/Marz MX Pro in the front and the stock SID in the back...and that's about the only stock item on the bike. I weigh about 175 sans gear or 185 with.)
Thanks very much in advance!
