A couple things.

1- For the next version of The Fork(s) Buying Guide, what would you like to see in it? For this version, I'm going to let you the reader make suggestions. My initial idea is to do a buying guide like the previous, but instead of a broad generalization, I'm going to do a low down on each make's offerings. So what do you want to see?

2)I'm a lbs mechanic again, and no, I will not do hookups.

So what are you going to review then, What models
You don't need to ride all of the forks out there to have a general knowledge of them, all it takes is some reading. One of my specialties is suspension setup, and while each fork is different, it is just as similar when it comes to internals.

For example TPC dampening and Motion Control Dampening are almost the same thing, Rock Shox went one step further with it. Manitou's SPV and Fox's Terralogic are opposites, but they both work in the same fashion. With that being said, if you can set up one fork properly, you can set them all up. well, except for those look alikes that come on depot store bikes.

I can go into more detail, but I really don't want to at the moment.
