I'm building up a Jabberwocky and trying to decide on the best fork for the bike and my needs / style.
My budget allows for the RST M-29 Air or the Manitou Tower Expert. There's about a $5.00 difference between the two. I'm trying to understand how the two will feel on this frame.
Both are 80mm forks. The frame has a 71° head tube angle.
Axle to Crown: Unknown
System: Oil, Air
Adjustments Available: Air Spring, Lockout, Rebound
Manitou Tower Expert
Axle to Crown: 490mm
System: "ACT" coil / air
Adjustments Available: Air spring, Compression to Lockout, and Rebound.
I haven't made a decision on handlebars yet in case the width comes into play. The trails I ride are classic east coast singletrack - twisty, rooty, and rocky.
I appreciate any advice on how these two forks might feel different compared to each other.
