I currently have a Guardian with a 2012 Reba 9mm QR fork and Sun Ringle Charger Pro Wheels that can be converted to a 15mm axle. I'm considering upgrading my Fork to a Manitou Tower Pro with a 15mm Axle, and am wondering if its worthwhile to get the new fork with a tapered steerer and a Goblin frame. I'm currently 230 lbs. and dropping. Does the difference in stiffness merit spending $280 on a new frame as well? What other benefits are there going from a Guardian to a Goblin frame?
