Ok I've narrowed my search for forks now, and Need a decent fork for racing.
Here are my option I've seen
Rockshox Tora 318
2007 100mm Dart 3-pop lock
2008 dart 3-pop lock (don't know travel, but its more expensive)]
Marzochi Zl sport
Marzochi Super Comp
Marzochi XC 6000 Sl 90-130 mm
Marz Dirt Jumper 2
Those are all within my projected price range.
I can find the difference between the two Dart'3 though.
I felt a dart 3 in the LBS today... big difference from my fork. So something along that level will make a huge difference.
I want at least 100mm travel and lock out. 130 mm will probably be my limit. I want adjustability so I can make it how I want it. I'm 165 pounds if that helps at all, and I race XC single track, lots of roots, ditches, "woomps" and hills. Lots of climbing... to much climbing.... Needs to be V brake compatible and disk compatible.
I'm trying to be serious in this thread as soon, I'll have the money I need hopefully, and I'll be buying a fork, and then tires.
Edit: These are all from price point so far,
