Rock Shox Dart 2 better than current fork?

Postby Nickswolves » Thu May 31, 2007 08:53 am

I can get a brand new Rock Shox Dart 2 fork for œ50 and wondered if this is a better fork than my current MAnitou Axel Elite fork?

It has turnkey lockout function which mine does not.

I am upgrading to LX discs this weekend and was at end of budget for upgrading but for œ50 would be tempted to get fork as well if improvement on current.

To be honest my budget for upgrading is œ150 and I'm getting some LX discs for œ115 so had a bit more money to use up. Hence question about Dart 2. If they are no better than what I got now, I will wait til later in year to get Tora's. Question really is are the Dart 2 better than current fork?

It's a tiny little bit better. I wouldn't bother getting it. Just buy the tora's when you have the money.

Ok thanks, think that answers my question. I assume the Tora will be much better than current then.
