Yeah, I know that they are a good company, but sometimes a company can make a bad product. Cuase here in Canada, that fork is cheaper than the Marzocchi Dirt Jump, well I think it is. The Fox is 130 and really light. And the Marzocchi Dirt Jumpers are 120, and heavier. So I was just wondering. But it looks like I will be putting the Fox 130R on my bike! Maybe....

Totally different purpose forks. The djer should be cheaper, but if you can find the fox cheaper it is worth. The djer is good for what the name says. Dirtjumping. Stronger, worse damping for trails, good for jumps and REALLY heavy
