Difference between F1rst and F1rst Platinum
#1
Hello All,
I have recently changed out the Suntour XCM V3 forks on my Trek 4500 that were shot for some F1rst Platinum air forks. The difference is like night and day. The rough tracks I used to find tough going are not a problem anymore. I have never ridden a bike with high end forks so I cannot compare performance. All I know is that for me, this is a great upgrade for a good price.
Anyway, I digress.... I would like to change out the Suntour forks on my other bike, but can only find F1rst Air forks in that area. (I could buy from Ebay, but prefer to be able to physically check what I am buying)

Does anybody know what the difference is between F1rst and F1rst Platinum?
