I have a 95 ish Muni Mula and the Marzocchi XCR'S are knackered. I bought some Rockshox Revelations before thinking about it but don't think I can use them. Any ideas? Thanks

Thr fact its likely to be 15mm thru axle can be accomodated with a new wheel, as xan it being disc only, but at 140mm they will be WAY too long for the frame geometry and the tappered steerer even more of a problem

Unless it has none of those features in which case I'm talking shite

Is it worth fixing XCR'S or finding bomber's, or something else?

and as it is now, repainted in later model year colours and in my ex sister in-law's possesion

I'll throw in a pic of her 90's Fire Mountain for good measure
