I ride about 25-35 miles a week, XC. What is the cheapest fork that would be reasonable for me?
I was thinking Rock Shox Pilot SL ($169 from Nashbar). But I would like to go even cheaper. Hopefully the fork will only have to last until the end of summer, but it might have to last a year. I was thinking of going rigid, but I would like to have some semblance of a shock. Something that will last is a priority over quality of ride.
I have 100mm travel now but would be fine with 80mm.
