    06' Boxxer WC or 05' 888RC ?

    I have a used 06' Boxxer WC I just picked up in a trade. I already have a new, in the box, an 05' 888RC that I planned on putting on my current Bullit or a new VP Free. No racing, pedalling, trail, FR , DH a little of everything. Any opinions on which fork would work out best ? It would be nice to try out both forks back to back but it would be easier to sell the 888 un-used if I went w/ the Boxxer. Thanx

    NO on the '05 888RC--although I do have one to sell....but if you already got a WC, stick with it! That stuff is awesome! The Boxxer WC is the only fork (888 included) that has been succesfully tuned for me, so that's where I'm coming from.

    go boxxer all the way, it is much lighter, lots off my friends sold there 888's to get a boxxer.The 05' 888 is wicked tall therefore changing your frame geometry. Oh, and if you your frame to feel normal, you have to spend $200 for the flat crowns!

    i'll trade a dh40rc2 for the boxxer if you're at all interested. dope fork im just a gear whore and get tired of parts for no reason.
    (ps- 40's can be adjusted from 6-8" so you could keep the bullit with the right geo with the right fork height...)
