- Rock Shox Tora 302
Get one with motion control damping (302 has less good lockout and rebound damping) and you’ll be reet: performance is similar but heavier than more expensive coil rockshox. The motion control cartridges are pretty reliable, as are the seals, so i wouldn’t shy away from 2nd hand ones, you will find recons for the price of new 302’s which have slippier stanchions and weigh a smidge less.
Or find some 04/05 100mm marzocchi mx comp/mx pro which are also right good for similar money.Posted 9 years agochakapingSubscriber
They’re good forks, bit on the heavy side but not cripplingly so – function well, similar to pricier rockshox like Julian says – just maybe take a bit more time to settle down after a big hit.
Secondhand ones go for about Â£50 or Â£60 I think, a bargain at that price.Posted 9 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Got a 302 UTurn
It boing and damps well for the money. It takes 50 miles or so to loosen up.
It feels tough but is heavy and makes the bike front-heavy which is good for pointing and blundering though. I find a pulling the front wheel up hard to impossible (I’m jey).Posted 9 years ago
