    Upgrading the fork on a 03 AC2

    I just got a 2003 AC2 yesterday from a friend that works at a bike shop for a great deal. I'd like to get rid of the Psylo at some point and would like fork suggestions. I'm planning on doing alot of aggressive XC/ light freeriding with it so I still need to be able to climb with the bike so I want a fork with some sort of travel adjustment. I've seen a few pics of AC's with Z150 FR SL's and that looks pretty cool, so would you choose......
    Marzocchi Z150 FR SL
    Marzocchi Z1 ETA
    Manitou Minute 3
    Maybe something totally different?

    You may want to look at something with adjustable travel, or wait for the new 2005 models, like the the new RS Boxxer ride, which is gona have adjustable travel from 130-170mm which will make it extremely versatile. Or manitou is coming out with the Nixon which is supposedly gona be 145mm at 4.1 lbs and RS is coming out with the PIke (145mm) which is also supposedly gona be 4.1lbs. That would be lots of travel whith a small weight penalty. Hope this helps
