    Rockshox Tora - any reviews or comments?

    Has anybody ridden the 2006 Rockshox Tora, either the coil-sprung U-turn or air sprung version?
    They come OEM on a lot of 2006 bikes, I was wondering whether they are an improvement on the Duke that has now been discontinued.

    Not to be a jerk but make a search or check the reviews section....

    There were some comments on this boards and apparently it is an improvement over the Duke.

    It would be a challenge for it to be worse.

    Good job!

    Here is an online article on the Tora 318 U-Turn model. The review was very favorable, stating that trickle down technology has served this fork well...

    Motion Control has changed my opinion of Rock Shox. I had a Psylo with the Pure Damper and a Duke with the HC2 damper and I was never pleased with their suspension action. But I have ridden Reba's with the Motion Control damper technology and it's a world of difference, now I feel like it's on par with the suspension action of the nicer Manitous and Marz forks.

    One more online mention/review of the Tora as part of Bike Magazine's writeup of the test ride during the SRAM Camp.
