    2004 or 2005 Jr.T?

    On www.pricepoint.com, they have both the 2004 and 2005 Jr. t for the same price. I am ordering one of them today. What i want to know is if there is any difference between the two years of forks, an if there is, which is better. I noticed that the 2005 has a lower MSRP price than the 2004, and i also noticed that the dropouts are different. The 2005 only has 1 allen bolt on each side, and the 2004 has 2 on ech side. Is one weaker, or are they just totally different designs?

    Exact same fork. The allen bolt with one dropout shouldn't be an issue if you tighten the axle properly. I would buy the cheapest. 2005 is being sold cheaper because the jrT SuperT etc... are obsolete. The technology in them is...well...old.
