  • If it's good enough for Shaums March, it should be good enough for you.
  • Yes.
  • One with a spring and good damping characteristics.
  • More than you'd want to spend.
  • Depends; but yes.

Fox DHX RC4; Cane Creek Double Barrel; Avalanche DHS. And get an RCS ti spring if you can afford it.

You asked if it would fit; I said it depends. It depends on if the steer tube is long enough.

Now you are asking what's better, which is a totally different question. Putting an '05 Boxxer Race on will get you an an older, low-to-mid-grade dual-crown fork on a newer frame. Leaving the Marzocchi 66 RCV on will give you a pretty decent long-travel single-crown. You have to decide which trade-offs are worth it.

Keep the Rocco and run it 'til (or if) it blows. I don't know much about the air TST but my experience with a coil Rocco WC was positive. If you want dual-crown, look for a 888 RCV.

Yup, looks like a fork for sale on the internet.

Stickered like a Team or WC but I have my doubts. It's really anyone's guess unless you actually ask the seller. Price is reasonable if it: 1) works; 2) was not badly abused. Only you can decide if it's worth taking a chance on.
