    I have a Fox Float 150mm on my Transition Bandit, but I'm looking for something similar to complement my TransAM (hardtail AM bike). Any suggestions? I'm looking at some sweet Rock Shox like the Revelation, maybe another Float...Just don't know much of what's out there besides Fox. Thanks y'all

    Maybe some more details on what you like? Marz 44 rc3 ti comes to mind in that group. I like mine but not enough time on it.

    Does Marz have any adjustable travel forks? With air?
    Dig my old 55s(air) as I can just wind the travel down to change geo to suit what track I'm riding, same with my Pike/Revelations. Handy on any bike, but love it on my hardtail.

    I love my older 55ata micro. I beat the **** out of that fork and it just keeps working just like it should. It has been the best part of my am bike. Havent ridden the new ones but if they are anything like mine they should be awesome

    Well I'm feeing the Marzocchi love here..Honestly, I never even considered their forks as I've always used Fox..Not that I think there's anything wrong - you just use what you know. I'll have to check them out. The Revelation seems pretty reasonable - this is my backup bike so I'm not trying to break the bank here. Thanks folks!

    I own a Revelation Dual Air and although RockShox discontinued this the fork is running way smoother than the solo air version of my buddy. The only problems I hav is that no matter how low of an air pressure I ride I never use full travel (~5mm stay unused) and the fork dives on steep descents.

    What do you think about the Pike 327? Little heavy it seems, no lockout, but aren't they pretty bullet-proof?

    been beating the piss out of my bike for getting on 3 years, still working well. It isn't the best fork ever, but for something that goes up and down, feels good enough, and is relatively maintenance free, it works great

    I've only had my 55 CR for a couple months, but so far it's been fantastic. 35 mm stanchions, 5 lbs, 20 mm axel, can be set at either 150 mm or 170 mm via a spacer, and the price is right.
