    Which dual crown fork?

    Okay, I've been riding my 2007 transition gran mal for some time now and I'm really starting to like the bike so I thought I'd upgrade the fork to a 200mm travel one. I've been running 9,5" x 3 marzocchi roco at rear (frame adjusted to about 185mm of travel) with 66 RCV fork. I'm a bit heavier rider, about 230lbs which makes about 240 - 245lbs with all the gear on. Mostly I ride downhill with small jumps and repeated hits, rock gardens etc.

    So my question is should I get boxxer or 888 or something else?

    Well about that 08 - 09 thing, I've been using my 2008 66 RCV for more than a year now, and can't complain much, rebound and compression adjustments works well and the air preload also is pretty simple, quite simple fork all in all. Once I've changed the fork oil and dust & oil seals, allthough the fork was working nice.
