I'm going 180 for the FB. Can't decide between Van or Float. I've read plenty of reviews and my question is how does the Float hold up to heavier riders and more lift type riding over time. Stevens Pass Bike Park opening up has me thinking of the new fork. Any thoughts on the longevity of the Float over the Van.

No problems with heavier riders and air (the chassis is the same, just the cartridge changes). I like the extra tuning that air allows but if your main focus is going to be the lift park you'll probably want the feel of the coil. The new air forks are great but still sacrifice a bit of small bump sensitivity compared to coil forks. Plus you can get an Open Bath Van for significantly less $$ than the Float.
