Hi all,

I own a 08 GF Marlin with the standard RS Dart 2 Fork. I am looking to upgrade the fork for several reasons...

1. I am having a hard time with a buffeting effect that occurs when a series of successive bumps are encountered (i.e., roots, washboards). I have tried to tinker with the rebound settings, but I am guessing that my light weight is working against me here.

2. It's heavy at 5.5 lbs. I'm not a weight weenie, but would like to trim my 30 lb bike to around 24-25 lbs to help my power to weight ratio.

3. I don't plan on buying any bikes for myself this year, and have some extra cash that I can use toward the rides I have.

Thanks in advance!:thumbsup:
