Unfortunately, I'm not going to have enough ends to buy a Reba or a Sid, so I'm going to have to stay with the two forks specified.
And, I'm sorry to be such a noob, but what is spv? And, why is lockout so important? I've heard that some mtb-er's don't even like lockout...
Also, I have gathered that Rock Shox is generally prefered over Manitou, but the R-Seven weighs a whole .8 pounds lighter than the Recon and, for that reason, might be better for XC racing...
Am I on the right track here?
