What front shock for marathon bike


Recommended Posts

My brother has left me with a GT Marathon (full sus). The front fork is poked (Manitou Black). The rest of the bike is in good nick so I reckon it's worth replacing the front fork.


I've got a Rockshox Revelation that I love. I know nothing about what's available and what's what with what's available - so for those that know, what would be a good fork to replace the Manitou with? Doesn't need any more than 120mm travel I would think?

Ok, I will start. How much money you got? 120mm is ok but 100mm is better for marathon.


Manitou Minute 100mm

RS Reba 100mm

Fox RL something 100mm

+1 for the Reba. Can't compare to the rest on the list, but I love my Reba RLT - so plush and you can adjust anything and everything to nth degree.
