    Which fork?

    I've been scouring sites to find a replacement for my Manitou-2 forks. The front runners are:

    Marzocchi MX Pro (Found a deal for $189)

    vs.

    Rockshox Dart 3 (~$170)

    My bike is pretty old now, so I don't want to spend a lot to replace the forks. Looking for more of an all around fork that is low maintenance ( I never had to mess with my M-2's the entire time I had them), durable and won't cost me a lot. I think at these prices, I'm pretty much out of the running on getting a light weight fork... I'll have to spend some extra cash to convert the bike to accomodate a new fork (new threadless headset, v-brakes and some adpater gizmo so I can use my '93 XT brake levers with the V-BRakes) so I have to factor those costs into the mix.

    I don't ride in cold weather and lately it's mostly road training rides or easy XC (if at all). I've got my GT Edge road bike (again circa '93), but I'm more comfortable on the road with the MTB.

    THanks,
    Jerold

    Consider a good rigid fork. For your type of riding it might be just the ticket.

    I've seen some of the costs for a good a rigid fork. For a little more, I'd rather stick with a suspension fork.
