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.
