    2013 Fox Talas 36 160mm RC2 or 2012 Marzocchi 55 Micro switch TA

    I am considering one of these two forks for my 150mm FS AM bike. It currently has 2011 Fox Talas 32 150mm RLC. I use the travel adjust often on steep technical climbs.

    I read many good reviews of the 2012 Marzocchi 55 micro switch TA. But since Fox has bought back the RC2 cartridge on 2013 models, I'm not sure which fork to get.

    Please state a objective reason for choosing Fox or Marz.

    They re actually both good forks. I'd also look at the Fox 34 160 travel. I am replacing the noodle that came w my 12 stump jumper with the new Fox 34 having already gone thru this with my Tallboy. The Fox 32 forks just seem to flexy if you ride in any kind of chunk. Just my 2 cents tho.

    Fox seems to have issues lately getting full travel from the air forks. There is also an ongoing oil transfer issue that was still affecting 2012 forks. The fix is fairly simple on that one. I have yet to hear anything negative about the new Marz forks. I did try a RS Lyrik recently and it felt significantly better than my 2012 36 Float. The RC2 damper should be a significant improvement though.

    Hi Mate, what forks did you end up buying?
