    I am small at about 5'2 and 100lbs. I do some freeride and I compete in downhill. Right now I have a 888vf that has no adjustments so I want something that I can adjust for different styles of riding. It will be going on a demo 9.

    the travis will be a great match. I would recommend the travis or the totem. both are sick forks.

    The good thing about those 2 is that they are at my lbs. The other forks I have to order from the U.S because I am living in south america.

    if you like the geometry of the 88vf then the bike will be so much better with RC2X

    just a thing to add, like smt said. if you like the 888VF then good luck finding another fork that tall. the 2005 marzocchi series were super tall. it is a rake machine. if you want something with the same ride height, then look into a 2005 RC because a travis and RC2x will be much lower forks.

    Yeah I don't really care how high it is. I would actually like to lower the front end a bit.

    The 888 can do both what you like do best, but you're only 5'2?

    Other than that, I say the Totem or a Marzo 66 if the 888 is too tall.

    Have you tried any of the Fox forks yet?
    Hunter, Simmons, Berrecloth, Watson,Vanderham, Semenuk, Schley, Gulevich, Bourdon, Smith, Moreland, Shandro, Boyko... Bieber.
