    Cross Country Fork Choice - what would you pick & why

    Hello.

    Which fork would you rather have and why? All forks are the 2009 model.

    would you rather have :

    A RockShox SID world cup

    A manitou R7 Elite

    A Marzochi Corsa Centro


    Sub question - What is the comparable FOX fork to any of these 3?

    Thanks in advance, - just to clarify this is for a geared 26 hardtail - kona kula deluxe. Just fyi, while I appreciate all 6-9ers, I will only be looking at 26 inch forks. Additionally, I will only be looking at 80 or 100 mm forks.

    Marzocchi Super Mon.... oh only 100mm?

    Probably the SID.

    I currently have a 09 SID world cup and it's a very good fork, i like it a lot more than my friend's FOX's. If i had a slightly better budget i would have bought a Magura Durin Race or SL though. I heard that the Durin is better than all the other XC forks around, it's light too. An other contender would be a DT Swiss XCR 1250. Good luck.

    I actually got to demo the Durin at Big Bear - 13 miles of rough west virginia & that fork really stood the test.

    I guess I am hesitant b/c its the first year magura is making forks... but given how well my test ride went that fork is definitely an option.
