I had a terrific 40km ride today in Wales. Everything was completely dry for a change and that happily reminded me of my country (Greece). However i noticed a loooot of flex on my forks while pedaling hard off the saddle. Is there any way to reduce or to eliminate this problem? I got manitou axel fork.medium springs. Specialized disc hub in the front. Should i get the stiff springs for my fork? Change the hub to deoreXT? Change the fork to Manitou Black series? By the way. after a rather long and steep downhill my brakes almost bed in finally and i can experience true power from my Xt discs.
PS. For fork suggestions i would like to stick to manitou. Also i am 200lbs and ride a rockhopper 2003 through aggresive XC and trail riding.
