are they both brand new? or used? What year are they? What model of boxxer is it, ie: team, world cup, ride etc...? What are you going to be using the fork for, ie: freeride, downhill, AM?

you need to provide more info before asking that question:rolleyes:

Sorry, both are brand new, The boxxer is the 2005 Boxxer Team and the Manitou Dorado is also a 2005 although it was made in 2006....i dont quite understand that, but thats the way it is. I will be using them more for downhill than for freeride, but a little of both.
I am light, i weigh about 60 kilos which is like 120 pounds.
