    Um, what?
    Marzocchi needs less service than RS does. They lyrik has a problem with the o-ring, and a lot of people break theirs in the first few weeks...
    Go with a 888. 05 boxxer teams are...
    1) Not Motion Control dampers
    2) No compression adjustments
    And 888's are
    1) Compression Adjustments
    2) RC/RC2/RC2X Dampening, and come with a variety of other adjustments (Travel adjust, Air sprung, etc)
    3) More stiff and bigger stanchions
    4) Better colours...

    888 All the way dude. Boxxer is pretty easy to maintain but a 888 needs much less maintenence. This dude has a sick 888WC up for grabs: http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/269572/

    More reliable huh? That's funny, everytime I go to diablo I see at least one boxxer hemoraging oil all over the place.

    05 was a bad year for both forks IMO but 888 would still be more reliable...

    it is near impossible to get spare parts for 05 boxxer stuff due to a company buying all the parts so it expensive to get replacement parts! id go 888 or lookin to a new boxxer both are great choices though i like 05 boxxer wc but love my 06 888
