    66 + p.1 = What?

    Hi, i'm getting a P.1 AL frame, and was wondering what fork should be put on it. I'm kinda on a budget as well.

    I wouldn't run a Marzocchi DJ unless it's an o6. The o4s and o5s were heavy. The o3s and earlier cracked. And I've never had much luck with Marzocchi in general (3 broken forks, 0 warranties).

    I've had much better luck with Manitou (no broken forks) and Rockshox (5 broken forks, 5 warranties).

    I have a Pike 454 on my 2005 P.1 A1 with U-turn travel adj. and I love it. I really dont run it in the 140mm range to much, its perfect in the 110mm range. But I give my vote for any of the Pike's and the Gold Label.

    how much exactly are you looking to spend ? right now I have a stance static on my P.2 it feels great. the bike tends to feel kinda awkward once you get over 130mm of travel. I would suggest either a gold label, sherman jumper or pike.
