I have an old Gary Fisher (hand welded) with Mantou SX forks that are way to soft for my 300 lbs.
what current/recent forks work well for us?
Thought about a newer bike, but seems that to get a decent fork/bike I would have to spend $1000 I don't have... at this time $800 is a little steep.
It seems most forks do not have the option of stiffer springs..???
Sat on Specialized RockHopper and Hardrock, but the forks collapsed 50% just sitting on them. I Like the 29, but same thing with forks.
I do not plan to ride rough trails- mainly street for exercise and dirt roads.
