I called my LBS looking to upgrade my RST fork that came on my Trek to something like a Dart 3. I was told that the 3 that they had in were defective and sent back. They were replaced with 3 Toras from the factory as they had no Dart 3's available. The guy I talked to said he was not sure which specific model the Tora was as the guy that inventories them just put "Tora RS" on the tag when they went out on display but said that it had a lockout on it so I am thinking either 302 or 318. That being said they offered it to me for $140.
Here are the questions? Is it a good deal for any Tora? Are there certain models of the Tora I should avoid? I am doing mostly XC, no drops or real hard core trails but definitely more than my 63mm RST can handle. I wanted to get the input from the hive on this one as I don't have a lot of forking knowledge on this particular subject.
