I currently have a 2003 Specialized Hardrock and am looking to replace the stock RST fork on it. I am in no hurry and would like to spend around $150.
Performance bike currently has the Rock shox Duke XC Uturn on sale for $150. There is also a 20% coupon, so the fork would only be $120. Would this be a good fork for a beginner? Right now I am only looking to do light XC riding, but I will probably get a little more advanced. I doubt I will be doing any jumps or anything? Also, will I be able to use disk brakes with this fork if I want later on?
