    Looking at forks....

    I am looking at rockshox duke xc/sl and Marzocchi mx comps so far or in that price range. One major thing I am looking for is a fork that will be stiff enough out of the box with enough adjustability for a ~200 lb rider. Tired of buying springs and everything for brand new forks. Almost every review I see for almost any fork says it is way too soft stock. What are peoples opinions on these forks or others in that price range in terms of stiffness and quality. I also see alot of rockshox forks that have needed warranty work within a few months so that is a concern too even though I've always prefered rockshox.

    I have the Marzocchi MX Comps (Air). I weigh 185 and they work great for me. Also great adjustabilty.

    Good to know. I've heard that air forks can be problematic with heavy riders but I like the mx comps. Does it loose a lot of air?

    I havent had any air loss so far. I do adjust them pretty regularly depending on the type of riding. Great Forks though. I highly recommend them.

    this is what my friend's dad suggests: "you don't need shocks!! if you were a man you could absorb the shock with your arms and legs!"

    yea...we made fun of him for a while after he tried to follow us on the trails riding his canadian tire P.O.S.
