    Take the fork off. (be sure to wear white gloves)

    Hold it above your head.

    Chuck it as far as you can and spend $140(ish) on a Rockshox Tora. (ebay)

    Yea +1 for this method. You will be happier without the RST fork.

    If you are going to be on eBay buying a new fork, take a mild solution and give the RST a quick how's you're father. Get something like Simple Green and scrub the gunk off the fork so it looks presentable, then sell it after you buy the new fork.

    yeah i already dont like it that much, the preload knobs are made of plastic. i hate plastic parts on bikes. im just doing free ride type stuff, no bombing or anything especially.

    Yea clean up that for a bit and sell it. You will have more fun with a new fork for sure.

    I have also found that a nice bike can make up for some of my shortcomings as a rider. I don't know if i get more confidence, or I'm significantly faster on a nice bike, but the sport seems to improve with improved equipment.

    Certainly spending tons of money isn't the way to become a great rider, and it doesn't work that way anyhow, but if you buy a new fork, I really can't imagine you will ever find yourself missing the RST.
