    Opinion on 2008 Argyle 318

    I am in need of a new fork. I'm sick of my RST puking oil everywhere (even with new seals). I have a line on a new (never used, still in packaging) 2008 Argyle 318. Price is $250. Any thoughts on this fork? I ride street/park and not as much dirt as I would like.

    depending on the model rst, u night need a new front hub. make sure the axles are the same.

    argyles are good forks. go for it. theyre good for any kinda of street, park, dirt, anything that u can basically throw.

    Yeah, I have the right hub, 20mm TA. It looks like a 409 just popped up for the same price. I ='m going for the 409.

    personally, ide still go for the 318. its brand new. u never know about the condition of the seals or internals on the 409.

    I contacted the seller of the 318 and they're unwilling to ship. I guess they've never heard of paypal. So, the 409 is my option, unless I wait. I'm willing to do maintenance on the internals, so that isn't really an issue. Plus, the 409 is local, so I can look at it before I buy.

    I rode a 318 for a bit. It was fine, but was quite heavy.

    I now have a 2011 XFusion Velvet - whoa, KILLER product. Significantly lighter and more adjustable. For $400, it might be worth looking into for you.
