    Z1 FR or Wedge for trail riding purposes ??

    I am concidering a 2002 Marzocchi Z1 (130mm travel) as a general trail riding fork for a Titus Switchblade with a 5.25" rear link.

    What do you think?

    I would go w/ the Z1 Freeride. The Wedge has the SSV dampner and the Freeride has HSCV & ECC.

    If you are under 180# go z-1, over and the flex will make you dream 32 mm's fork.

    why not a '05 fox vanilla 130mm?

    I'm running a '03 fox vanilla 125mm on my SB. IMO the lighter fox is a better match for the SB and trail riding. The Z1 zokes are great forks but if you don't need the extra beef the Fox is plenty of fork for a SB.

    I've ridden both...

    The Z1 for trail riding all the way. The Wedge was a good jumper, but had poor compliance as a trail fork.
