HiTen fork vs Alu fork? Vitus Mach 1 Three vs Boardman URB 8.6
edited August 2022
Will Boardman URB 8.6 have much more rigid fork? And does the Vitus Mach 1 27.5 wheels really "absorb the lumps and bumps of roads" better than 700c on Boardman URB 8.6?

An aluminium fork will generally be stiffer than steel, but that 'generally'.
Its not the wheel that absorb the lumps and bumps better its the tyres, 1.95" (50mm) v 32mm on the Boardman.
Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.
