I need a new fork and am considering the 2006 Marz. 66SL and the 2006 Manitou Travis Single Intrinsic. I currently have a 2005 66RC and absolutely love it. However, I'm in the process of getting a new frame and the 66RC is too tall. I've read great things about the 66SL and I'm sure this fork would be great but for some reason I want to try the Travis as well. Does anyone have any opinions on these two forks?

Thanks

I would not go with the travis. two of my friends have/had them, and both had a lot trouble with them. I'm not sure if the 150 has intrinsic or SPV. Apparently the 06 Intrinsic cartriges had some problems-they explode.

The entire 66 line is now shorter.

The 06 cartridges did have a few glitches. Once you get them working well, they're very sweet forks.

I don't think that there's a SPV Travis. Only Intrisnic and TPC+.
