    Tora 318, Minute 3 or Black Platinum?

    Which one would you reccomend for my XC build. I am looking for a nice fork 80-100mm fork for my XC build. I weigh 230 and don't do anything extreme. Out of the three listed does anyone have any experience with them? The Minute and Black are model year 2006 and the Tora is a 2007. They are all air sprung.

    i have the Tora 318 and like it alot. i weigh 235 and it's pretty smooth/responsive and doesnt leak air. i'm no weight weenie, but it is on the heavy side @ 4.5#. i dont have any experience with the other two forks. good luck

    I bought an '06 Minute 3 100mm and really like it (6'5", 235). I have not tried the other two, but heard good things about the Tora.

    One difference between the Black and the Minute is stanchion size. The Minute is 32mm, but the Black is only 30mm.

    I would get either the Black or the Minute. I have both(minute 2...not the 3)and love'em. I weigh 235lbs and ride them both hard. Cant go wrong with either one.
