Hi guys, I just picked up an RST CAPA TL from Performance Bike Shop for $20. I can't seem to find any info regardiding this fork. Does anyone have any experience with this fork at all.

    RST stuff is generally crap. $20 is more than it's worth, most likely. Bike path, commuting, etc--it'll be fine. If you're actually going to ride trails with it,'ll find the limitations soon enough.

    Capa is pretty much a entry-level fork, about 65mm of travel, then comes the Gila (89mm) and the Mag (89-110mm)series.

    The Capa is a elastomer boinger, that's usually standard equipo for $200- $250 bikes. Performance must have a bunch of those that they swapped out for people who wanted to upgrade.

    The Gila and Mags are Coil/MCU. You bought the fork for a good price, as you could barely buy a mexican dinner for $20, so that guy who posted "that you paid $20 more than its worth" is wrong. 65mm of travel is better than zero. Have fun.
