Ok, so I'm a back in the pack expert xc racer with a kona hardtail. I'm an agressive singletrack lover, but I'm only about 155lbs. I have been a manitou man since the begining, and I need to update my flexi, retirement age mars c from 2000. Should I jump on one of the sweet skareb deals that will be everywhere now, or spend massive dollars on the new r7? I'm sure even the skareb would be a big improvement over my fork. I've never had a lockout, and I doubt I would use it much if I did. My geometry is set up for 80 mil, if that matters. I would consider a fox if the weight was competitive. I'm trying to avoid spending money on something that will make my race bike heavier. Thanks in advance.
