Hi there, there's a person selling his Marzocchi EXR Pro, 120mm travel open bath, oil & air fork for 90E, shipping included. Used for a year but excellent condition. This fork would be going on an '05 Hardrock Sport with an RST Gila T5 (100mm travel, preload adjuster that hardly does anything). Would this be a decent budget choice for downhill and light freeride? I can understand that it was not meant for either but I'm on a budget and I'm only 49kg (what, 110lbs?) and am looking for a fork that is actually decent and that I can get the full travel out of it (the RST would reach 55 or so millimetres before not going any further). Rebound can be adjusted by changing the oil viscosity. Is my assumption right? Oh and what are the main differences between air & spring forks, in terms of feel?
If an RST didn't break on me in a year then a Marzocchi shouldn't either, no?
