Just to add, I've got coil RS lyriks on one bike and coil RS sektors on another, both work great. I won't go near an air fork (or rear shock).
And props to you for sticking with the poo brown fox forks if they work - one of my pet hates is people swapping out perfectly good kit for alternative because it looks better (unless its a retro bike that is - which is one of the reasons I like retrobikes - its an excuse to do stuff like that wothout feeling guilty).
Most people seem to really like RS products, I just can't gel with them and can't really put my finger on it. I guess I'm in the minority somewhat.
I'm not convinced either yet by air forks; no matter what people say, coil forks are smoother. I like Marzocchi's approach where they combine the two, because the air pressures needed to add preload are so small, you retain the feel of coil forks.
My 36's may be old but they work really well. They're still on their original stanchions despite all the horror stories on the net and they only get serviced once a year. They've been tuned slightly to provide more support in the mid stroke but are still very supple and quite light. The colour is a bit odd, but I quite like them.
Off to Scotland next week and can't wait to try the bike out on some bigger trails.
