    The Trance 2 has a better spec and is cheaper. I'm not sure why there's even a question here...

    Well it’s got NX vs SX but apart from that?

    I’ve read the Marzocchi is a better fork than the Fox.

    There are various deals on both models that bring the cost in at about the same.

    The Marzocchi fork is a stiffer fork but with that it's heavier, so if you're a heavy rider that's good but if you're a weight weeny not so.
    The gears on the 3 are heavier but not much to worry about, so the whole bike is more weight.
    The Trance 2 has an advantage in that it's lighter and it's blue.
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"
