Front Shocks

hey,
I have the same Giant Rincon Where you buy the front shocks and how much were they? and what kind of shocks are they? Also i was just wondering why you took the original shocks off ? I was just wondering both bikes look awesome though.
Thanks

i was bottoming out teh stock shock with ease (im 230lbs) and i wanted somethin i could lock out for when im riding trails that i need to climb and not loose all my energy in the shock. i put a dart 3 on it and it lasted for 3 months or so and i blew it out so it got replaced with a tora. only had it a few weeks now, but it seems nice. im gonna hit the trails this week and see how i like it. i ordered through the LBS where i bought the rincon at


and pictures are dark....well because it was near night time. so yes it gets dark on my planet every 10-16 hours or so depending on the season
