    Thanks for the recommendation, MTB forum

    My ownership history of MTBs includes:

    Old carbon fiber Cadex (sold - too old, too small)
    KHS soft tail (great bike but sold for Cannondale)
    Cannondale F600 disc (loved it but it got stolen)
    Merlin (sold - felt cheesy riding an awesome bike with no skill, plus I found I'm not a big Ti fan)
    Trek 4300 (just purchased after 2 year hiatus from MTBing)

    I got the 4300 because it felt the best on test rides, and honestly I have a thing for cheaper components these days. Kind of like 'em. The bike rode great except for the fork... wanted to upgrade that elastomer wonder (Gila RST) immediately, so I searched quite a bit on this forum and the review sites.

    Came up with my answer as the Rock Shox Tora 302 w/poploc based on your recommendations. Tossed that bad boy on and it really made a world of difference. I love the lockout on the fly, I love the damping. It made my $420 bike ride like my former $1000+ bikes. Gracias amigos.

    Good on ya. There's plenty of good advice here, it's not all 15 year-olds with little experience.

    I resent that. Besides, I dont offer any advice on things I know nothing about (therefore I offer little advice).
