    Hardrock sport v. comp

    I'm stuck between a sport and a comp, the comp is an extra 100 but has a marrizoochi(sp?) fork (in the motorcycle world they are damn skippin) and some other ups, as most know. I would just like the pros and cons, not some "oh they are crap" deal. i live reall close to a Specialized dealer so parts would be readily at my hands. ive ridden a trek bike but my KX80 handles better than that thing. i have yet to test a comp, but to me the sport was ok. im just asking for your thoughts

    $100 more for the better fork would be worth it IMHO.....

    Definately go for the Comp., the Sport's fork just gives trouble and quite bad performance. Dish out that extra bill and go for it.

    but the fork on the comp still isn't all that great.u could just get the sport and invest the
    100$ into a real fork.

    By real do you mean rigid? 'Cause with 100 dollars I don't see anyone getting a good suspension fork...

    wel i should have said "invest towards" a real fork .for 150 to 200 you can pick up some used good marzocchis at ebay .and maybe you can even sell that gilla thing as new for 20 bucks(thats all i would pay for it)

    Ah, OK. That's true, for 200 you can get some great deals on ebay.
