Just bought a nice Rock Lobster frame from Jussa and I'm struggling to decide what forks to put on it.

I've considered rigid (maybe some P2's), but I'm not sure what to go for if I decide to add some bounce.

Any suggestions?

Thinking about Judys - what was the difference between XC and SL?

Ti bolts and Aluminium steerer....

(and if 1995 then 10mm of travel)

and the colour.

possibly some milling here and there one the stanchions were bonded on to the crown (1996)
or as Rockshox tended to put it.... "more expensive weight saving" :lol:

All in all they work the same but lighter.

I've always thought orange f7's would look good on a mono seat stay frame!
