    Fork upgrade?

    I'm new to MTB and with the advice from this forum I've started with a hardtail. My budget was limited so I bought a Giant Boulder SE in silver. I mainly ride single and double track trails at least once a week. I love my bike but I'm starting to doubt my front suspension, any advice on a fork upgrade? In a few years I'll get a road and full suspension bike but until then I wont be riding anything else besides my hardtail.

    Thanks in advance.

    One of the first Aluminum Rockhoppers to come with front suspension.

    That fork is more expensive than his whole bike! I doubt he can afford that if all he could afford was the Boulder.
    Giant Rincon. Riding Trails and just having fun is what it's all about.

    Well in term of the frame, it fits me and its a hardtail. Just as long as I dont crack/bend the frame, Im good. Since this is mountain biking I figure that im going to have to replace some of the components at some point due to damage or from getting worn out.

    Maybe one of the Rock Shox Dart series forks? Priced from 100-175 (i think).
