    Buyin New Fork For Specialized Pitch Help

    Honestly whats the difference between these forks, they range in all different prices, what makes one better than the other.

    Marzocchi 55 R $300

    Fox 36 Van $700

    RockShox Lyrik $770

    Specialized e150 dual crown from the enduro barely used for $400


    I want a fork for more freeriding (large jumps and drops) and some downhill. The pitch frame cannot take more than 160 mm travel.

    The Marzocchi 55's are an air sprung fork. Typically an air sprung fork is lighter but produces a more 'bouncy' rebound. These forks weight 6.17lbs, kinda heavy for an air sprung imo but the price is the point. $300 is hard to beat.

    The Fox 36 Van is the cream of the crop imo. 6.3" of buttery coil sprung travel weighing in at a mere 5.28lbs. You pay for it though. $700.

    People have been raving about the Lyrik. It comes it the most models using both coil and air sprung systems (from what i read). If you wan't to go with SRAM this fork puts up a fight against the Van's. Rock Shock uses more complex engineering then anyone else I think but if you know how to keep it dialed they are great forks.
