    66rc is a bit out of my price range...I don't want to spend more than $300 on forks.

    I would say the DJ's thou, they aren't that much bigger but they don't cost as much.

    Or look at the Drop Off's. They are really good. But I'm not sure how much travel they have.

    Take the dirt jumper - the others are too big for your frame.
