    Best 80-100 mm suspension fork for SS

    I have a retro Klein Rascal SS with a rigid fork. My current project is building up a Titus Riddler and I'm contemplating putting on a suspension fork. I'm thinking air sprung with 80 mm travel. I'm partial to Marzocchi on my FS XC bike and free ride rig. Do I need a lock out? I prefer durability and function over weight. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    No lockout for only 80mm

    My personal opinion, not enough travel to require a lockout.
    I'm thrilled with the zokie mx comp I just got.
    1st ride on my Surly since the MX Comp
