    well, it looks like the judy is FINALLY dead after quite possibly the longest run in the suspension market. long live the judy.

    but the dart is the judy.

    i know yall are tried of the begginer stuff, but im still there. College ties up most of my money, im just i guess new and exicted about my new hobby, something me and the g/f can do 2gether. anyways i just wanted some input on if yall thought it would be bad to get a new fork just put on the market? Maybe to work out the bugs?

    Its really not an all new fork. Basically the same specs as my '06 J3, just a new name, different colors etc. I think they might have tweaked somethings, but you shouldnt worry about bugs.

    i thought they would be about the same. but wasnt sure. also i saw somewhere the they dont have bosses for my v brake on a review site, then i saw on another review site that they do have the bosses.
    i hate being mislead, i think im going to call sram/rockshox and see if they are included.

    They most likely make both! They make a bossless design and a bossed one.

    I rode a '06 and '07 Rockhopper, the '06 had the Judy and the '07 had the Dart. I could tell absolutely no difference between the two either physically, or how they rode. YMMV

    I'd only worry about that if the fork was completely new but the Judy is a well proven design and the Dart is based heavily on the Judy.
