Oh Vince, I read what you were saying and something in my head said "ahhhh f*ck it" and I've bought RS Argyle 318s for cheaper than usual and will hopefully have them tomorrow or wed. I was won over by the lock out.
C'mon admit it, you bought it because it's name sounds Scottish LOL
But hey perhaps they have got their **** together since last time I had one. But that being said I've had bad experiences with many forks over the years. Only my Monster T never failed me but the bitch is so ****ing heavy I only used it for those fooking high drops (a job for wich it was built to do very well!). I also had the first runs of the Manitou Sherman Firefly... My god the memories, was doing some street session one night and I had put the fork to 3in extra stiff settings only to have it pop back to 5in after some jump. I then learned the earlier Manitou "travel adjustment" where only in fact hooks clamping onto the spring to restrain it's travel!
As for in every fork brand I would suggest to do oil change every 2 month or so. Always did this on mine and it's well worth the time!
And P, be sure to post a review!
Price range is 3k. Terrain, I have no fvcking clue because I'm moving there in 2 weeks...lol. Theres no mountains, Im guessing mainly trails and a few hills/decents.
Get a hard tail.
Excellent advice from Monsieur Buff. On another note, my new forks were delivered today. **** worthy I tell thee.
