Yeah its good, a bit floaty maybe(very slightly)on the climbs, but nothing to worry about on the downs. Not that I was going that fast anyway :roll:

that sounds good, I just buffed up the one that I borrowed, looks nice.

I've been offered two forks one Manitou Skareb 80mm's black discs only, and one Sid Wc 80mm's in silver with V and Disc fittings. A black fork would look great on the satin black Avalanche but I'm a bit concerned that the Skareb is a lot higher, compared to the Sid.

Also Rock Shox feels a bit more GT then Manitou... And if I go for a silver fork I could go with a silver finnishing kit? like a silver thomson post and silver wheels and XT V's?
