So i'm looking for some fork advice. I have been trawling through various websites, looking at sus forks, but now my head is swelling and I have not been organized enough to make some kind of comparison chart. I figured that some of you here will have been through the same process and can offer some assistance
so. what do I need. Well I just ordered myself a cotic soul. i know the travel range is 100-140. but I am looking to stay in the lower end of this. For me 100-120 would be fine. I do mostly alp riding, so as much up as I do down (distance) if we talk time in the saddle im obviously taking more time to go up. I am not a cable car only dude. I like the climbs.
My riding style varies and i like to do long treks as well as technical descents as well as the odd blast down the mountain.
Im not sure if an adjustable fork exists which can be changed from 100 to 120 travel? this would be cool for me, even if its something i have to do in the garage. On the fly travel change could also be goo, but so far i didnt find one. Im looking for reasonably low weight, so an air shck would be preferable and also remote lockout from handlebars. The budget is about 400 smackers.
So far I didnt really think about, whether I should go for a tapered fork? not sure whet ther benefits are and also QR vs maxle, so I could really do with some input as to what pros and cons are between the two.
So I appreciate all the help you guys can give, maybe if you could also suggest some models to look at It would be great.
