Recommend me a fork

Im getting the Sette Shadow frame and im wondering what fork to get for it.

I'll be riding mostly AM, but i want it to be able to handle some VERY LIGHT DH and LIGHT DJ.

I want mininum travel of 100mm and max of 130mm.

Other things : mainly lockout, maybe adjustability...

Price...keep it around $300-$400 IF POSSIBLE.

Thanks everyone in advance for all input.

2006 Fox Talas RLC You might be able to find one NOS in your price range. Or used. If not go with a recon U-turn Or a pike.

Wow, I cant believe this just occurred to me: If you get the pike, you'd need a new front wheel.

I wanted to go to a 20mm TA, but then not only would I have to get another front wheel, but I would also have to an adapter for it to carry on the roof.

Well **** i was about to ask this same exact question, I have narrowed my choices to a Marz DJ2 or the 55 R possibly lowered (I think thats possible?) Any opinions on that on?

Sorry for the minor hijacking, these are 2 option you might look in too as well though.

getting a new wheel doesn't matter much as this might be a whole new build...

but the Pike U-turn (preferably the 454) is a bit expensive...

So you being closer to the places most bikes are made now is no advantage when shopping, eh? Noone that ships out of Taiwan that works for you?
