    quick rockhopper question

    I recently purchased a 06' Rockhopper Comp Disc with the Rockshox Tora 318 fork. I haven't taken it out of the shop yet (not until summer), but does anyone know if this fork on this specific bike comes in COIL or AIR.
    I already know this fork comes in coil and air form but I want to know which version Specialized chose to put on every of their 06' Rockhopper Comp Disc models.


    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure if the Specialized web site is correct regarding the Tora. I purchased the comp disk in October and the Tora that came on the bike is adjusted by air pressure, and when it has no air in the fork it sure doesn't feel like their is a coil in the leg. I have not opened it up yet, but I'm pretty sure its the solo air spring.
    On another note, I think you will be very happy with the performance of the fork. Most other forks that come on bikes in this price range don't come close to matching the performance of this fork. Compression and rebound adjustments are easy and quick and work well. Give it a little time to break in and ride it hard.
