Ive got a either Marzocchi Bomber Z2 x-fly forks in the polished/red, 80mm travel NOS or a Manitou Mars super fork in red with lockout again, 80mm travel and hardly used. Which would you use with a Giant MCM carbon team frame and why? I had a set of Pace RC40 forks on, but theyve been used on another bike and were probably too long even on the 100mm setting anyway!

Marzocchi, slight weight penalty balanced against reliability, plushness and toughness.

Marzocchi's are a far better fork in all departments but weight.

I killed a pair of Mars Carbon forks on one muddy ride on Dartmoor.
