RST suspension?

Hey hey,
i am just about to order a bike that comes with a RST 191CL suspension fork. I heard some bad things about these shocks. I want to know if i should order a new fork at the same, or are they not that bad?? I just need them to withstand some 3-4 drops at the most, but mostly just trail riding.

Any information would be great, thanx.

The RST should be able to hold up to 4" drops.....but it is a really cheap fork. Dont get a new fork until the RST breaks, just see how long it might not even break.

Ditto, don't swap it until it breaks! Save your $$$$.
