    Need help finding XC Fork

    I ride a 21' Iron Horse and it needs a new fork. I do XC the most and need to find a good cheap fork that is betwen $200-$250.

    Any brand would be good.

    I would strongly recommend Marzocchi's MX Pro with ETA

    when i go of a bigger then small jump and land it sorta bounces me back alot its weird i think the shop i got it from didnt care about quality and just how much they were getting for it.

    EDIT: Just looked at my bike after i while of not biking...due to broken arm...I needed to do a tune up and i figured out it is a much less quality. It is actualy a Dart 1.... i know big diff, i just had that fork on my mind cus my amigo has it.

    Sounds like that could be an issue with to much rebound and if I'm not mistaken Darts have that adjustment. So I guess your problem in the dreaded operator error. But you still should consider getting a new fork like a Tora.

    Sorry about that then. My buddies dart had rebound adjust.

    My dad has that Marzocchi fork and he likes it. I also have a Marzocchi fork (a double crown). They make good forks though.

    What is a tyvm and why do you have such an aversion to proper spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure?

    tyvm = Thank You Very Much

    But just because people know what it is doesn't make it right to use it. Unless of course you are 8.
