    New Fork on my Faith!

    Hello everybody,

    i want to put a new fork on my Faith but I'm not sure which one i should take.

    To narrow down the choice i list three forks which i would prefer.

    1. Rock Shox Boxxer Race

    2. Rock Shox Boxxer Team

    3. Marzocchi 888 RC2X

    People say that the Boxxers are better for Downhill Racing and the 888 series are more for Freeriding and you can also assume that the Triple Eight will resist almost everything.

    So thats not very insightful for me.that's why i ask you for help.

    I'm riding mainly on local trails and sometimes there is a trip to the bikepark.

    The fork should have a low servicing and should be also very durable. Drops about 2 meters and more should also be possible without crashing the fork.

    I hope you can write something about your experiences with one of the mentioned forks.

    Especially a relation between the Boxxer Race and Team version would be very helpful

    Thanks in advance!

    Race doesn't have the high speed shim stack (high speed damping)

    considering your needs I'd take the 888RC2X, Team works nice but has few little drawbacks IMO
    Passion beyond reason!
