Yes but I wouldn't go over the 105mm version! So no 120:)
Nice upgrade indeed.
Also, what idsk brakes do you have currently?
Shimano Deore 525 hydraulics
Marzocchi has another fork with excellent comments : the MX with ETA, comp or pro
Do you have experience on this one? It's a lot cheaper.

Go with the MX Pro. I think the MX line has smoother action.

Have you thought about a Manitou Black? They're comparably priced and have a great feel. If you do, get the 80/100 Elite. You can get them for under 200 bucks now and they weigh less than an MX.

I want to replace my Manitou Axel Super (100) bij a Marzocchi Marathon.
Is this possible on my Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disk? :confused:
There shouldn't be a problem, and that would be a nice upgrade. You don't want more than a 100 mm fork on it anyway, It'd feel like a chopper. Also, JensonUSA had a good deal going on a 100 mm Manitou Skareb Super SPV, which is also a great fork.

Thought about it yes, also the RS Duke U-turn gets good comments, and seems to be stiffer. It's hard to choose.
The Black is the oem fork on the new Stumpjumper elite, so should be good.
