I am looking for forks for less than £200 ($350) for aggressive XC/light freeride and some DJing. I need 105mm max to fit a 04 specialized hardrock sport. I have looked at the 05 marzocchi MX comps and the rock shox recon, are they any good and if not, is there any better ones?

The Recon is better than the MX. You can pick up a Pike and just wind the travel down to what you need. The Hardrock really isn't good for DJ or FR. It's an entry level bike.

You can reduce the travel on Shermans very simply using spacers within the travel adjuster assembly. The way that I do it, it's safe to throw down on. You can see a picture of one of the Flicks I did a couple threads down.
