    Suntour fork on rockhopper comp

    What are your thoughts on the Suntour forks on the 2012 Specialized Rockhopper Comp?Should I try to hold out and wait to find a used Specialized Carve?

    Do you already have the Rockhopper? The fork's a little entry level but Suntour is doing an upgrade program right now. If you have a Suntour fork, they'll sell you a Raidon air fork for 175 bucks.

    Has anyone done that? I know Nick from SR posted in a thread of mine regarding that upgrade, but I don't know of anyone that's done it yet. I'd definitely like to take advantage of that.

    One of my riding friends will be doing it this week and my sister in law and her friend will both be doing it as well. I'll let you know how it goes.

    What is the general consensus on the Raidon fork? I just bought a Revel that has the Suntour forks and I'd love to take advantage.

    I have never seen one. If anyone in my group follows through, I'll let you know what I think.

    Hold out for a used Carve. It's a MUCH better bike.
