    Any big Clydes running a Drake Super Air? (29or26)

    Trying to decide on this one or an 08 Tora. Anybody compared these two?

    I've got about 50 miles on a 29er 125mm drake super air 20mm TA fork. Before this I had a 26" Tora 318 SoloAir on my old bike. I think the Drake is plusher than the Tora and I only have to put 60-70lbs of air in the preload to handle my 310lb arse. I haven't messed with the rebound much, but I love the platform adjustment. Fully locked it is much more rigid than my Tora ever was. Its great for easy adjustments on the trail from full squish to lockout (it has 6 platform stages). The drake is definitely stiffer structurally, but that probably has a lot to do with the 20m TA. I can't say if a QR drake would be as stiff as the Tora.

    Tough choice. The Tora is a proven clyde fork. I like the Drake better, but there doesn't seem to be much experience or reviews on it.
