Hey folks. Just needed a little advice on some suspension parts. Right now, I'm riding an 02' Marin Rocky Ridge (17") with a Judy C fork, 6'1" tall and currently weigh 270. This fork has a pretty nice ride to it, but it's abit too soft for me. So my question was, how would a 03' Manitou Black Elite handle with firm springs in it? Does anyone know what springs they come with? I ask cause this fork is on sale for around $200 right now(disc only with no brake boss). $200 being pretty much my limit. And another question, anyone had expierience with a Cane Creek Thudbuster seatpost? Not really looking to make the hardtail a softy, just trying to keep the soft ass from becoming to hard.
