I gave up on the 1.1 road bike. It seemes to stretched out for me due to back issues. I am now focused on either the FX series or the Montare/Utopia line. I like the thought of having a suspension fork to go where maybe you wouldn't take a FX but I can't seem to get any indication on how much weight they can support. I also wonder if riding out on the road (where the bulk of use would be) with the fork locked cause any damage to it over time? Also, I keep reading about the constant adjustments required with disc brakes. Is it because they went cheap on them? How can a Utopia with discs and a suspension be cheaper than a 7.5 fx with neither?
