If your fork came with boots, boot them. If not, don't. The only exception I can see is if the boot does not touch the sliding bit of the fork/seal and you ride in heavy mud.Phat Tire said:I have heard mixed opinions on the usefullness of boots. I'm thinking about buying a Lizard Skins neoprene boot for my Cane Creek AD5 and removing the rubber boots from my RS JUDY C's. Opinions?
