I cant help it..........

I have an itch, a want that wont go away

I am running Marzocchi Shivers on my Mr O

But I keep looking at Marzocchi Super Monster T's

Now dont get me wrong, the Shivers are superb & im struggling to find their limits

And I have No doubt I would never find the limits of the T's

Its purely for visual esthetics :oops: :oops: :oops:

So do these,

Hmmm, tough call. There its something really awesome about those T's, but the Shivers are sweet. If I absolutely had to choose...

Shivers

Alternatively, buy a bike to fit the T's to anyway and have both! :roll:

Get/keep both - interchange as you see fit (and then the rest of another bike will pop up at some point too :lol: 8) )

Do you really mean "Super Monster Ts"? Weren't they a very limited edition of the Monster T with something like 12" of travel?

Either way, I don't think there's much to choose in terms of coolness, but i'd also say that Monsters would suit the look of your Orange better.
