I'm building my bike up slowly, but surely. The fork has got to go. It's a real cheap Spinner Edge fork that just doesn't stack up to what I'd like. I knew this buying the bike, but it's one thing I've put off upgrading for a long time now.
I'm in a dilemma between air vs coil, but I've read a lot about them. I have the air shock I'd like to get in mind, which is a Rock Shox Recon 351 Solo Air. It's available with a 20mm thru axle (which makes sense for me to grab while I'm upgrading the fork anyway). 130mm travel, black in color, and in my price range of ~300 dollars.
I'd like a very comparable coil fork to look at, just so I can further bounce between the two forks. Is there any type of fork you can suggest me that has the following parameters?
- Around 120mm travel (my bike was 120mm stock)
- 20mm thru axle option
- Available in black
- Available for 300-ish
- Available with 20mm thru axle
- Coil suspension
- Disc brake mounts required
