    05 888RC or 05 Boxxer team

    Yeah, I just got an Azonic Gravity frame and now I need a fork. This is my first DH bike and I dont want to spend too much money. I seen good deals on both 05 888RC and 05 Boxxer Team forks. I was wondering which would be the best to get for my frame and what are the pros and cons for each fork? Thanks.

    I probably won't be doing too much racing, but it is something I want to look into. I also don't think I'll be doing any huge hucking, at least not yet, since this is my first DH and I'm coming from XC/all mountain riding so I need to build up my confidence. So for now, I'm just going to be hitting up any downhill trails I can find and just have fun.

    the zoch should serve your uses better and be more reliable for what you're doing.

    i'd go for the Boxxer Team :P if ya do want a Marzocchi buy my 888 lol 04 888R with 05 RC internals, Marz upgraded it for me after it broke lol. never had a problem with my 03 Boxxer Team, sold it to a buddy of mine and he's still riding it, only thing that's been done is a set of seals this year. I'm currently lookin at getting rid of the 888 for a Boxxer again lol.
