    2010 Marz 55R vs. 2010 Rock Shox Domain 318 coil

    I need some fast advice and opinions on which one of these forks is better handling and durable. I have the opportunity to buy one or the other but cannot make up my mind. I mostly ride aggressive trail riding with 2-3' drops and jumps. The Marz is 160mm travel and the RS is 180mm. They both look good but I would like some other opinions to help me out thanks.

    180mm seems too much for a XCT

    No actually that's just a matter of opinion. I think it works quite well!

    It's not JUST opinion..it's all about geometry, but I'm sure you knew that.
    your bike is 140mm stock, 180mm might be fine but who knows until you strap her on there and see.

    I know... Cheezy geometry is all about doing it right in your head... Then get back to us in a few rides to see if you got the best bike ever or a horrible back pain and hard to pedal position...
