    help choose '09 Suntour or '07 Manitou

    Newbie here...Budget is pretty tight. I'm looking for a new fork for a build. I've found an '07 Manitou Slate (New Old Stock) and an '09 SR Suntour XCR-RL that both can be had for sub $130. Would like some advice on which one to choose. I'm 210 lbs. Not into competition, just doing it for fitness/ recreation. Mostly paved roads and dirt roads, but some dirt trails. Eventually I'll get more into challenging trail riding but nothing too extreme. Any help would be appreciated.

    The TPC is a very good damper for the money~

    Thanks for the advice. I pulled the trigger on the Manitou.
