I need mad help, I don't know what to do. I have a Jamis 21" hardtail and do mostly XC riding. I
need a new shock and don't know what to get. some people tell me that rock shox are $hit and other
say that about marzocchi. both shox are about the same price and weight. If u have one of these shox
or love one of the brands can you plz tell me why I should go with that one. I am also looking for a
shox that will have not that much matainance, and I don't want to sent it back to the factory.
Thanks for the input, I know I am not the only one w/ this question.

Oh yeah, I am 6' 4" and 190 lbs. and like I said hardtail and mostly XC.

ride a bomber and you won't go back. Switched this year and the difference is very apparent. Just
change the oil and you ride more.

Worked with Rock Shox for three years and they are like a disposable razor use em till they break,
the Marzocchi are made to last but the u turn system really is the best travel adjust

I'm about your size. When I was younger, and a bit lighter, my bike store WOULDN'T SELL ME A ROCK
SHOX. They knew what they were talking about. I was riding on their team, and they refused to sell
me a fork that they knew would flex like a noodle under my weight and power. Buy the Marzocchi. The
Psylos are better than the RS forks of old, but I've ridden them, and they're still not stiff enough
or reliable enough for people our size.
