Trying to decide on a fork for my new build. The frame is an '07 Kona Stinky Primo:

Get the one not made in Taiwan.
I rode a travis triple on a Rocky Mountain Flatline at Whistler for two days this past September and was totally blown away at its performance. It ripped!!! Get one!
This is a great price for all the performance.
I've had too many bad experiences with all things Manitou.
Go Rock Shox. I love their forks.
marzocchi 888. I've had all three. 888 (yes new one) is the way to go. Travis is the worst. Absolute worst.
888- freeride or not so smooth riding style.
boxxer for racing or weight savings.
I have a boxxer team and like it, even though I don't race.
Wait for the fat boxxer. It should be available early 09 if I'm not wrong.
If not it's a bit hard. Many ppl will complain on travis but with the corect amount of maitanance I think it works better than the 888 if you want it to be smooth but not to fast and progressive.
888 is if you do stupid crap and often hurt your bike. Maybe look for a 07 888rc2x.
The travis has a weaker chasis, its still heavy, and it has no LSC damping. IT dives wayyy too much. And it requires too much maitenance.
fox 40 all the way
Haven't spotted the diving. Even with much LSC my marz dives more imo. For maintenance yeah its true but oil change every 2months isn't that bad.
why did u leave out Fox40s? They are the dogs bollocks when it comes to forks dude!!!
I had Boxxers and Travis.
both very good forks. but it is true that the Travis needs a little more TLC.
Did not notice too much diving too..
And for now i just got myself the last version of the "old"
boxxer .. a 09.. looks like a great fork.
because i dont want to pay twice what i paid for the frame for their crap
Boxxer team gets my vote.. just look after it and it will look after you!
Ah... in that case... Boxxer Teams is your answer!
In my opinion Mz hasn't either a better LSC control than the Boxxer or Fox.
Get the Team if you don't want a Fox.
I say 2007 888 as well. The 08/09 888's don't appeal to me. Too heavy, and I don't like what I hear about RC3. Boxxers brake too easy. Almost everybody I know who has had one has broken them.
But rly, do you? Cuz I cant decipher what you ment in that post.
