    R/S Domain 318 vs Marzocci 55 RV

    I'm specing a budget am/fr do-all bike that I can set up for a 220lb rider. Which is the more durable/reliable fork? Any other ideas on 6in+ coil forks in this pricerange?
    Thanks

    I think the Domain is a bit more durable (steel stanchions) but you have to be more careful with service as it is a semi open bath design (only 15ml for lubrication) while the 55 RV is a open bath system (it will lubricate the stanchion-bushing interface better and with less risk of damage).

    In terms of damping performance, I think the Motion Control IS is superior to the RV.

    I'd go for the Domain (I have one actually )
