I've put off the idea of a new bike for a while so looking at fork options...
Want 34-36 mm stanctions
150-160 mm travel with travel adjust
Independent low and high speed compression damping
20 mm axle
Straight 1 1/8 steerer
Don't get me started on why the hell 15 mm axels are a necessity for 'trail' forks but I need a straight steerer to work with my angle headset. I'm going to have to take a hit on the weight but this is for my only MTB so don't want silly weight as I have to ride and carry up mountains
So the options I've seen are
RS Lyrik RC2 or RC2L for travel adjust and lockout
Marzocchi 55's - can get either RC3 or travel adjust
X-fusion don't do straight steerer
Fox - I'm hearing bad things about the 34 especially TALAS models.
What else is there?
