    Can a Marzocchi Dirt Jam Pro be used for XC riding?

    Upgrading my Specialized FSR Enduro (which currently has a stock Judy fork) and looking at 100mm forks. I'm new to Marzocchi and am really confused by their models. I went to their site for the first time and whoa did you see that chick with the 66 fork? That is the sex! I'm looking at this 2006 Dirt Jam Pro 100mm that someone is selling online and was wondering if this can be used for XC. It is a bit heavy but it does look pretty swanky with that chick sillouette. Also loooking at the Manitou R7, which seems more attractive weight wise, but I have to say that Marzocchi forks have some sexiness to them in regard to their design. I like how the the two legs nicely curves up toward the arch )on the non-boss) ones).

    Dirt jumping forks make very poor XC forks. They are valved to take big hits (like landing a jump) so they tend to ride very stiff and unforgiving. If you want a Marzocchi, check out an MX Pro or this Smoking deal on a XC 600
