Opinions on a few suspension forks
My front fork is a Suntour XCM. It seems to work somewhat ok, but it states it is specifically not for anything other than small bumps. I have some single track/trail stuff in the area with decent sized rocks, roots, small ramps, and several 1-2 foot drop offs. I've been doing this stuff with the Suntour, but I find myself holding back because I don't know if I can trust my fork.
I can get Marz 44 RLO/Manitou Minute/RS Recon Silver Airsolo w/ poploc all for about the same price being in order of decreasing cost. I was wondering if anyone had experience with one or more of the forks, and if there is any big reason to put one in front of the other.
For me the Manitou Minute is ahead right now because of the weight and damping technology. The Marz 44 RLO in second because of the 120-140mm travel. Recon is nice in that it comes with a pump, but I have heard bad things about the TK lockout, and it is heavier than the Manitou. Thanks for any input.
