    A fork under 350 dollars to replace: MARZOCCHI MZ COMP, 120MM TRAVEL

    What is a good fork to replace this fork?

    Coil? Air? Stay with 120mm travel? What bike and kind of riding?

    Goin onto the iron horse warrior 4.0 but I would have been up at the trails all day if it wouldn't have been snowing!!!! GRRRR I am so mad my weekend fun is basically ruined now.


    Oh well I plan on doing about 75% trail and the rest of the stuff is 4-5 foot jumps and drops. And yes I like a lot of suspension travel and I am not sure if I need air or coil fork but what would you say I need for the description above? I don't weigh much so I have to adjust it so it is extremely soft and soaky not hard and bouncy.

    I second that. I picked up a minute MRD absolute for 340.00 from Jenson. Killer deal. They also have several other forks on sale. I don't have time to explain my whole fork saga but let me say one thing: Manitou has freaking awesome customer service!

    at 90 lbs, any coil fork with the stock springs installed will likely be too firm for you. If you get an air fork, you can avoid hunting down a soft spring kit, and swapping springs.

    what is wrong with the MZ anyway?
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
