    RST-Gila T8 suspension fork

    Tektro IO-X disc brakes

    Do these justify 110 dollars....should I splurge for the X3 will it be that big a difference to a casual rider

    Nah...I'd buy the cheap one and save the money for a good aftermarket fork if you don't like that one.

    I'm guessing its your first bike. I'd buy the cheaper one plus a frame pump, patch kit, and multi tool. And hemet if you don't have one.

    If I'm wrong and you do have those things, I'd follow Chelboed's advice.

    Don't buy a frame pump...those goofy things are for roadies. Buy a Mountain Bike pump. Frame pump stretches from the head tube to the seat tube, silly.
