    Opinions on RST Rapide Super 2005??

    Im a mechanic in a bike shop and Im used to fox,marzocchi and rockshox forks but my first fork was an RST. I though this company no longer existed. But I just found they had a website and they seems to sell low quality fork but the Rapide Super fork surprised me. It seems pretty damn good.
    Whats u guys opinions??

    That one should take the extra second to type the extra two letters in "you" so as not to appear like a illiterate 12 year old AOL'er.

    RST makes forks that certainly look good on paper, but would I buy one? Nope, they haven't earned my trust.

    sry if I disapointed you Raiyn but my english is not perfect, im not perfectly bilingual

    Overall this fork seems good but the quality of the fork may be poor after long term or excessive usage

    I think the quality of the fork will probably be poor from the start.

    You seem to be versed well enough to know english computer slang. Stop it. The word is "sorry"

    It probably has a crappy damper, and wouldnt last very long. No way I would be willing to spend any money on it to try it out. I would never buy an RST.
