    I bet you could snag an 888 for less and be up to date on the latest tech.

    Yep, 888 RC2x would be a good choice for you, maybe also a Rockshox Boxxer (The one you can afford)

    nice choice, but IMO the shiver did very well with the older 24" Big Hit and a Big hit link in the back...

    999....a little pricey....I would look for a used Shiver....once you get it just change the oil and go
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    its only the fox 40 its not the rc2, i dont know what rc2 is any way and i heard that you have to rebuild the 40's like 2-3 times a year and they break seals easy and stuff. I wouldnt mind having a 888 either

    Can't trust everything you hear.

    Sherman is not that bad. Devolve it, and it'll stick to the ground.

    And to the OP, they are adjustments, which are helpful to get your fork properly set up. But I THINK, (read - not sure) the 40r is internally adjustable, which could be done by a shop who's knows their stuff. So for a beginner, it's nice, but you can manage and still have a great fork w/o.
