most of those forks have barely any morre travel and marzocchi is a good brand so it should be good. i wont do anything real big until i get my norco. i will do up to a 6 foot drop on this one. when i get the norco i will get a litlle crazy. this is the norco i am gonna get in a couple of years.

Norco Torrent. my BIG hit bike. i will probaly do most anything on one of these. what do you think the torrent needs, to be worthy of a little punishment?

I do jump like about maybe five foot high doubles and table tops. i will also do drops up to about six feet. i ride trails with trees laying across them  that you have to bunnyhop, will the rims be alright if i hit the rear rim on a log. the rims are Alex DM18 Double Wall 32h. are they strong enough for the riding i described? also what chain guide do you suggest for the norco?

over 100mm.im saying the fork isnt good for jumping because thats not what its designed for.it will break if you abuse it.its a cross country/trails fork.designed for very little jumping.

if you ride a $150 mongoose then how come you are the bike guy on this forum? my hardrock is a pretty bad bike and it is better than that. i thought that you were gonna try out for a pro team? on a mongoose?
