Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 1 or 2
Fox- real sweet forks any model will suffice.

as i understand it, the psylo is set up more for free-ride with more travel and weight compared to the judy which is more an inexpensive xc fork...
i'm more into light-weight than major travel, but i really like the air shocks -- i now have the Fox Float and my old SID was great too -- although both of these cost a lot more than the 2 you mentioned...
sorry i don't know more about the technical differences between the 2, but you should be able to look up in a magazine or the web the stats: weight, travel and adjustability and then try and find out about stiffness...
The Psylo is the answer. The U-Turn Psylo has an external adjustment in terms of travel (80-125mm, I think?) that also compensates and adjusts the spring rate.
Get marzocchi , don't watse your time with rock shox

I definately prefer air to coil
the psylo is going to require a lot of maint. though b/c it's rock shox

thanks for the info even though it helped none, next time pay atteneion to the poll, marzocchi wasn't an option! so snap out of it and pay attention.
