Im looking for a fork to do some trail riding with. I have a hardtail right now. imnot sure which model of the mars it is but its a 2002 and he wants $40 for it. It comes with a pump. Its mostly black with a yellow stripe in it. Also im 245 lbs and it will be used for some serious trail riding.

My son had a Manitou Mars on his Specialized FSR XC, and he liked it alot... but he's a kid, and, when he rode that bike, weighed less than 100 lbs. He sold the frame and shock to a guy who weighs about 170, and that guy is still using the same shock with no complaints.
