    Marzocchi Forks

    I was wondering if anyone with a Marzocchi Marathon or MX COmp or EXR tell me how they compare to a Rock SHox Duke. I have ridden a freinds SID race for a while and was spoiled by the plushnessness and was just curious about the DUke. I have found Marzocchis to be much less plush however more stiff than the SID and Duke. Any recomendations would be helpful. And what about the Marz Atoms? DO they still make them?
    Thanks

    Marzocchi's LESS plush????? I doubt it! Oh wait, you're talking about the Marathon (Air).

    If you want lightweight, go for a RS Duke or Sid, if you want Plush, get a Marzocchi, but get coil sprung fork!
