Re: Forking decisions

I have been extremely pleased with the performance and serviceability of my DVO Diamond and wouldn't hesitate to buy another DVO fork. I never had any mechanical issues with my DVO Diamond but I also only owned it for about two years. My only gripe with them is they weight about 200 grams more than similar forks probably due to the OTT spring. I would not recommend an MRP Ribbon. The damping of the MRP Ribbon is very unpredictable. I also don't like how the ramp control functions which seems to further add to the forks unpredictable nature. The fork just doesn't inspire confidence when you can't reliably anticipate how it will react on the trail. The MRP is light though but that comes at the cost of more perceived flex.
