I'm looking to upgrade the Zocchi OEM steel sprung suspension on my 05 Kona Cinder Cone. Ideally I'd like to ebay something. I'm 90% trails rider, occasionaly some aggressive free ride stuff, but mostly I hit the single track. Can anyone recommend a good air-oil, that's durable relativly light (and not too outrageously expensive). I'm just looking for ideas that will match up with my midlevel bike and brands that you would trust buying used.
Thanks as usual.

05 forks can be had chep on Ebay right now(brand new 05's)
what is the price range you are looking for.
you can get a fox float for less than 400 on ebay.
larger stanchions (32mm) and lighter weight (3.5lbs) than anything in its price range. nice solid feel. it is air/oil and has approx. 85-115mm of travel range. it is disc specific...don't know if that is good or bad for you, it was great for me!!

Oh and price range: Probably a couple hundred give or take, depends what I find on ebay--I just need a few ideas on what to look for

I got one after he told me how much he liked his. It's beefy, light and easy to adjust. I weigh about 160-170 lbs . and ride some very rocky trails(www.bootlegcanyon.org) and it works great . How much you weigh effects the performance of air-spring shocks quite a bit , or so I'm told

I'd check out the All Mountain line from Marzocchi. Ebay usually has tones of All Mountain 3's on sale.
