Finally sold my bmx so I have some funds to go towards a better fork for my Voltage. It's currently set up 150mm rear and with a 160mm 55 RC3 (2009) which is ok but it's pretty heavy and due to the air preload feels pretty notchy and isn't as smooth or plush as any rock shox forks I've used. I've removed the foam rings which helped a bit but it's still not great. I'd prefer an air fork as they're much easier to adjust and I always seem to sit inbetween coil weights - that being said my Sektor is about right with a standard spring so maybe RS coil I can get away with?
So, who makes a good 160mm air fork these days? I've generally got on well with Rock Shox stuff, always feels nice to me. So was just thinking about a Lyrik or maybe even an air Totem and either running the frame in 180mm settings, or lowering that to 160mm. There's someone I'm messaging on Pinkbike potentially selling their Totem RC2DH solo air for a good price so any experience with that?
Travel adjust/u-turn would be nice but not essential. Needs to be 20mm maxle.
Budget will be about £300 second hand. My frame has a 1.5" headtube so I can get away with any kind of steerer "standard" so may be able to pick up some bargains?
