Of these forks, which would be the most clyde worthy for a 29er?
Marzochi? (not sure which one)
White brothers bw .8 (I think)
I suspect the question comes down to which is the stiffest and which would be the most durable.
There really is no contest here. White Brothers is far and away the stiffest, and very reliable to boot. Opt for the 20mm thru axle option and you will be in a different league, stiffness- wise, than any other fork. Too spendy? Then the Reba is a great choice. Stiffness is good, and seems to be reliable- so far! These have only been available for a short while; however.
Whilst Marzocchi has a great run in 29" wheeled bikes, being very reliable, they lack stiffness in comparison to the other two. Add to that the difficulty in getting a heavy spring package for these forks, ( at least the coil model) and it becomes a second tier fork performancewise. Not a "bad" choice, there are way better forks to be had, that's all. Check out the 29er board, and do a search. You'll find out more there.
