Have picked myself up a Mongoose Tyax Super XC 2010 for a first bike to get me out cycling again....seemed to have a great spec and decent frame for not too great an outlay.
My dilemma is what to do with the Rockshox Tora 302 coil forks that come attached. Initially I am just planning to do mostly road cycling around the Western Isles of Scotland, and had just figured I would use the fork lockout feature for this. At 300lbs though, I know sussy forks aren't too hot.
Would I be better just detaching the forks when they arrive, flogging them on EBay and picking up some Surly rigid forks? Are there any heavy duty springs available for the Tora's that would give them any use at all? Any off roading I do will be fairly lightweight I imagine....but the roads aren't all together smooth in many places here, some some damping would be useful.
Many thanks in advance!
