    Futureshock vs Talas RL (SJ Pro vs SJ Expert)

    I'm going to buy either the 2011 Stumpjumper FSR Carbon Expert or the Pro. Now I want to know if it is worth buying the Pro.

    Stumpjumper Pro:

    How good is the FutureShock (Pro) compared to the Fox Talas RL (Expert)? On my 2008 SJ I had the Talas RLC and loved it.

    I was thinking of talking to my LBS about buying the Pro and exchange to fork to the Talas RLC and maybe save some money that way.

    If any one has other pros/cons with these two bikes feel free to let me know.

    i don't know how is the specy fork work...
    how can i say is that the futureshock fork have rebound and compressione regolation the talas of the expert is rl... only rebound and lockout.
    but the major difference is that the futureshock forc have a "brain" valve inside. i don't know if this component is a advantage or not...
    the future shock also i think it's more light than fox...
