    What he said ^^^. A Pike or Z1 is probably your best bet.

    If you don't mind QR then you can probably find a nice deal on a Fox Vanilla 32. With spacers I think you can either have 110mm or travel or the full 130mm travel.

    Pike I think is a little bit out of my price range.

    Lets go with $150 - 350.

    What is the Argyle Worth?

    Did you file a police report on the guy who hit you? Shoulda had his insurance recoup your losses.

    I got my Pike Dual Air for $450cdn brand new off of eBay, shipping included. You'll likely want a Coil version so you could probably hunt around and find something cheaper. The Pike is an awesome fork...it's a popular choice for the DJers around here...

    Just make sure the guy has a high postive feedback and he's not dodgy or anything. I got my fork off ebay and i've had no troubles. Might need a service later down the track, but its all good.

    Likewise I got my fork from eBay, the seller owned a bikeshop and had high feedback. As long as you do your part to ensure a safe transaction its all good
    "I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."

    You should be checking local. nsmb.com and pinkbike.com both have solid sales areas with local riders. I have sold a few things to people through nsmb.com. Its always fun to get a call from someone just up the street looking at the part I am trying to sell haha
