There's no point in putting a crappy fork on an even crappier bike.

Dude, you honestly know nothing about bikes. Putting an old fork on a X-mart bike is pointless. It's still a crap bike. And you've wasted $100. You should have just gone to a real bike shop and bought a decent bike instead of buying crap and trying to upgrade it. We've all told you this already, but you don't listen.

You are a legend.

Oh, and I agree with these guys - save the money and get a different bike, the money can be spent better elsewhere.

Yeah, you should have saved the 250 or so you spent on your mckinley, the 100$ you want to put on a new fork and an extra 30$ and get a Specialized Hardrock Sport or something like that.
