Okay, I've narrowed down my selection, but I'm having a hard time deciding on which one of these forks to purchase.
This is the way I see it: R80 RLT, lighter/less expensive than F80 X but no inertia valve thing;
R80 X, inertia valve thing but more expensive and a bit heavier;
Skarab Platinum, SPV technology, lighter than R80 X and the least expensive of the three.
I'm 185 and ride XC, doing 5 or 6 races every summer. Weight, stiffness (I'm sick of my flexy SID), and plushness (is that a word?) are my main concerns. I don't mind a little bit of front end bob while riding. I'm leaning in the direction of the Skarab, but I would appreciate any input or suggestions.
