So, I'm looking to upgrade my fork. I'd like to stick with a coil spring (I think) as it will require less care and maintainance than air, but I'd like something smoother than my current ride, which is a tora 302 100mm. So I'm thinking of getting the 318 u-turn with motion control and running it at 120mm travel.
The 318s cost £250-ish these days (kicking myself for not getting one at £120 when I had the chance a few years back!). So, with better damping and more travel, is this a worthwhile upgrade over my 302?? Or will it be about the same?
If it's not a worthwhile upgrade then what should I go for? And (seeing as I'm quite good at damaging bits of my bike) am I right to avoid air springs?
Cheers in advance!
PS 2nd hand forks aren't usually an option for me as I'm tall and hence want an uncut steerer tube.
