    For light trail riding, the capa will be a good fork, I have ridden on them and they seem pretty plush. Specialized bikes rule.

    I'm not a big fan of RST stuff they've always struck meas not just low-end but cheap.

    BTW. This isn't an AOL chat room. Please skip the cyber-shorthand. It makes you look like a lazy sod.

    The Specialized Hardrock is a nice inexpensive bike that is worthy of upgrades. First thing to be upgraded...the fork!
    I try not to say too much, for fear of putting my foot in my mouth when it should be clipped to my pedals.

    I got a Norco Wolverine with a RST Capa CL fork. I'm getting used to the sound of it bottoming out every time I go over a jump or a drop. The fork will be my first upgrade!

    Just ride it until you either wear out the the parts and replace them or until they bother you enough to throw more money at your bike. It's still an OK bike.
    If pain makes you stop you'll never learn.

    Dude this is an intrawet website about bicycles, not a English class.

    I don't think anybody uses spell check beofore they post here.

    And why are you complaining about shorthard when you are using them yourself and your spelling is off also.

    TTYL

    P.s i purposely f#cked up the spelling and grammer and used shorthand on my post just for you.
