    +1, my stock one only lasted 140miles, lol. Go to a cheap rockshox at least. The steer tubes on the suntours are piss poor.

    Are you saying the bike that your gonna put it on is not gonna see any trails? If so why not. I ran a Suntour Duro Triple for a season on my Wolverine...sure it sucked and I hated it but I got it for really cheap and it's still alive. It's better than nothing and if thats all you can afford and you don't ride very hard then it'll be fine until you save up for something better.
