Just arrived my new GT Sensor 1.0 26er 2010 frame and as I have no experience on full suspension, was wondering if I could use both front and rear coil suspension. Right now I use a GT Avalanche hardtail with a RockShox Tora 318 U-Turn 85-130mm coil fork that I like a lot. Very plush and reliable, but a bit on the heavy side (2.300 grams with pop-lock) and limited adjustability.
Would it be a bad idea to use it on the Sensor together with a Fox Vanilla coil on the back;
I am aware of the increased weight and limited adjustability of the coil forks/shocks but I like the plush feel and reliability they offer.
Coil suspension is abandoned on low travel trail bikes;
Any response appreciated!
