    as i understand it, the psylo is set up more for free-ride with more travel and weight compared to the judy which is more an inexpensive xc fork...

    i'm more into light-weight than major travel, but i really like the air shocks -- i now have the Fox Float and my old SID was great too -- although both of these cost a lot more than the 2 you mentioned...

    sorry i don't know more about the technical differences between the 2, but you should be able to look up in a magazine or the web the stats: weight, travel and adjustability and then try and find out about stiffness...
    why drive when you can ride?

    The Psylo is the answer. The U-Turn Psylo has an external adjustment in terms of travel (80-125mm, I think?) that also compensates and adjusts the spring rate.

    I definately prefer air to coil

    the psylo is going to require a lot of maint. though b/c it's rock shox
