I have RST CAPA TL with 80mm travel.

Manitou Black Super Air 100mm on the other
Cannondale Lefty ELO Titanium (100mm travel)
I really have no idea about the various shock brands and their product ranges.. is there a clear cut advantage that one brand has over another for a particular condition or riding style, or is it more a Shimano vs Campy type thing in that all brands can do most everything very well, and it's more to do with individual preference?
Maybe I should spend a lazy afternoon at work educating myself
I have a Rockshox Psylo, and a Manitou Mars (you have not discovered the meaning of plush until you have ridden this fork)
2004 Marzocchi MX COMP w/ETA. Recommended by a lot of people because of ride and quality.
I have a mantou Black 80to 100 mill. w/ rebound adjustment also
I like it better then my RockShock pilot
Currently have Bomber Bam 3 on a Kona U'HU
and Drop off Triples on a Stinky.
Both came with the bikes but have had no trouble at all.
Have no experience other than Marzzochi but very happy with their products.
MX Comp W/ ETA and Air
came on my 2k3 Kikapu
Marzocchi EXR COMP, 110mm travel.
i have a marzocchi z5 flylight air very nice fork
Rockshox SID SL (2000 model)
Rock Shox Duke XC - not the be all and end all of forks but certainly does it for me!
Rigid, baby. Use those elbows for good instead of evil....
I've got a Rockshox Psylo. With adj. travel 80mm to 125mm. Its very nice for switching from XC to almost freeride.
Judy TT.... wanna change it real soon.. what's the lightest fork? SID????
I think the FoxForx is pretty light.
the Fox Forx F80/100 X (is that the best model? i think it is anyway..) weighs 1.5kg (about 3.5lbs) SID weighs about 1.2kg (about 2.6lbs)
SID is the lightest on the market, BUT it's a race-only fork. if you do epics or aggressive xc, you may find it flexy/noodly. if you stick it on your race mtb, you'll be right.
i'm choosing between a Fox 100RLC or Marzocchi MX Pro ETA. Both are 100mm and have lockout and are good for epics and aggressive xc. and since i don't race, weight is not an issue vs versatility and the plush-factor.
i am leaning toward the Marz as it is such good value!
Manitou Skareb comp 80 mm travel w/lockout. Still new, but I have read bad things about it. Apparently, they tend to crack and fail with HEAVY use. We'll see...
