    Which fork should I choose to banshee scythe for FR and sometimes Dh ?

    Hey there !
    I`m looking for new fork to my banshee scythe. I`m riding in FR and sometimes Dh but not a lot. I`m considering these forks:
    - Rock Shox Totem Coil DH 2010 1.5"
    - Rock Shox Totem Solo Air DH 2010 1.5"
    - Rock Shox Boxxer Team or Race 2010
    - Marzocchi 888 Rc3 Evo 2010

    I prefer single crown fork to dual crown.

    Can You help me please ?

    You could also look at the 2010 Lyrics solo air or coil in 170mm. Supposed to be good, and might me enough for you if youre not that hard of a rider.

    I would recommend you go with the Totem Solo Air

    6 lbs and can handle everything you'll throw at it.

    If you feel it's a bit too tall just pop it open and lower it down a tad... Mine's sitting at 160mm on my SX-Trail, awesome awesome fork. You won't be disappointed.

    Budget doesn`t allow me to buy 2010 66 rc3 Ti. Is it better than totem ? Now I`m considering 2010 Totem Solo air DH and 2010 Totem Coil DH. The price is simmilar for me. What will be better ?

    i've been on a totem coil since they came out. its a quality fork. the Mission control is great. it'll match up with the scythe really well.

    I actually on a totem on my wildcard - with the zero stack headset it feels good.

    Had a Totem Solo Air, great fork for FR / Trail adaptability, changed the Internals for Coil when started doing more DH, Even better again, Mission Control Flood gate kept blowing, think they've fixed that now. COil is smoother than Air, but Air is better for trail use i'd say, just for travel adjust etc.

    Both great forks.

    Yup, they're like hard rubber.... Used a 50mm piece and cut it down to size

    Isn`t coil version more trouble-free ? I`m considering only 2010 version Do You think rc3 ti is better than rs totem ?
