    Which fork would you keep?

    Hi guys,
    I'm building a hardtail and ended with two budget forks to use for it.
    A 2005 Manitou Six 100mm and a 2006 Rock Shox J1. Which would you keep
    and use and why?
    Thanks for your help.

    I wish I could. This is a very budget bike to for me to tow the kid trailer with.

    Would a used 1998 Marzocchi Z2 BAM be better than these 6 and 7 year newer forks?

    The forks are brand new BTW.
