    Upgrading a 2003 Gary Fisher Marlin fork

    Upgrading a 2003 Gary Fisher Marlin fork: Any suggestions? I am looking for a used much nicer quality fork ( I know, I know it's a cheap bike, but ...) Any ideas on what would be a perfect replacement. It came with a Manitou Six fork.

    The Manitou forks are good ones. Nashbar is a good place to get them. An 80 mm fork would probably be ideal. Perhaps even 100 mm, though that could stress the frame beyond what it's designed for.

    I believe the manitou six is a 100mm for to start with.
