    What kind of fork

    Ok lets try this one. Well I have a GT 2.0 full suspension ride and im in need of a good set of forks. Now i ride mostly fire trails and some downhill slolum. I'm pretty rough with my bike so i need something that can hold up but wont burn a hole in my pocket. If anyone can help me out i'd greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you.

    How much is too much?

    At first shot, I'd suggest a Marzocchi DJ2 w/QR20 hub!

    Over at eBay, they've got the DJ3 standard dropouts with a free Chris King headset for $259 (Buy it now!). Not a bad deal considering Chris King headsets sell for $100-110, so you'd be getting the fork for $159!

    Price Point has Marzocchi MX comps with ETA for $259 and it comes with a free cane creek headset. 105 mm of travel and the ETA is a lockout but not completely, when it is activated it still gives you about an inch of travel (30mm) to soak up some of those bumbs on the climbs. The MX series are for aggressive XC so it is a different type of fork than the DJ, not as heavy duty. I'm thinking about picking up one of these for my bike. And its a marzocchi can't get any cooler .

    I really like my 2002 Psylo SL. Beefy, supple and light. But...it started leaking recently. Rumor has it that they've re-engineerd the seals and the 2003 model does not leak.
