I use Revelations and think they're great. Full service once a year has kept them running sweet.

Maguras are good too but parts cost a fortune if you need to replace any internals.

dont want to hijack a thread but.....
i'm having awful trouble looking for some forks for my new build.
they'll be going on to my FSR Elite. Looking for a good XC build. no downhill action, not a particularly aggressive rider and this will be my first Full sus build....
i literally have no idea where to start, but it does seem to be between Rockshox and Fox and i'm already leaning toward rockshox....
oh yeah, and i kinda still need v mounts...:S

Fox or Rockshox? mmm...
It's kinda like the Ford v General Motors mentality, when better cars could be had from overseas...
Detroit Iron or German engineering? :wink:
