    Need Help With My New Fork Choice

    I need to get a new fork for my bike and im split between three different forks that i can get for all about the same price. The fork is going on a joker and it will be used for freeride and some trail riding, but much less of that. My options are the Marzocchi Z1 Sport, Manitou Travis 150, or Junior T.

    wow thats quite a few people for the travis, i kind of thought the marz might win out. is there any reason that the manitou is better than the marz, they both seem to have exactly the same specs, i think ill probably go with the travis...but im just wondering.

    z1 sport or Travis. I had issues with my Marzocchi forks being flexy, tall, and heavy. And I broke 3 of the 4 I owned (warranty was declined). But other people have had good luck with it.

    Travis has an amazing feel to it, but it is in it's first gen, and problems can arise. But I've generally had very good experiences with Manitou. They've always been pretty cool with our shop about warranty issues.

    how come people recommend the Travis when it hasn't been proven for reliability

    Manipou feels good for 2 months then goes to pot


    In Marzocchi we Trust
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    if so id love to hear from somebody who has had the travis 150 for some time, over a couple months and hear how it performs compared to when they got it. i honestly don't like manitou very much, ive always placed my faith in marzocchi, but from what people have been saying it seems like the Travis is just going to outperform the Z1 sport. id really like a fox van 36, but the shop i work at can't order them...im pretty sure.
