    I would probably get the 66s. I have them on my faith 1 and my friend has the sliders on his cannondale. The 66s are much smoother and they have marzocchi quality.

    uhhhhh... lol

    Any future sarcasm should be written in Italics with one of these

    I can't imagine you could go wrong with either one, but I'm willing to say the 66rc is going to have more range in damping adjustments and most likely last longer before needing a bushing replacement.

    There's also the issue of DC vs SC. SC allows for more tricks and tighter turning. There's also the fact that you won't damage the frame as easily if you crash the DC stanchion into the frame really hard.

    how much do you weigh??? Man unless you are over 180 you won't need heavier springs
