So has anyone used either fork. I know there is quite a difference in price but I dont know if I should stay with the VT 1.3 or spend about $350 more on a fork I have heard alot about. They both offer adjustable travel, and while the VT has lockout, the Nixon has SPV which has had some mixed reactions, also I am partial to air springs rather than the coils found in the VT. Also, does either fork live up to its claimed travel? I've heard some say the Nixon only has 137 mm when Manitou says it has 145, and I have heard nothing about the VT's travel other than the site says it has 130mm. Also both forks claim to have anti bob technology but I want to know the real truth. This fork will be used for enduro, XC, and some mild to moderate DH. Any help would be great.
