So I'm riding the Kilauea in an 8 hour endurance on May 24th, call me a wimp, but after commuting on the bike for the last week I've decided that I'm too old and feeble to do the race fully-rigid. I have two forks that I'm considering, a period correct Marzocchi XCR and a not so correct but very funky Bomber Z2 Super Fly, based on good taste, geometry and comfort, what do the many RetroBIKE Kona fans think is the way to go?

EDIT: Also, does anyone have the faintest idea where I might be able to get a cantilever stop for the Z2?
