So, I bought a new fork about 3 weeks ago for this bike and seeing as my mongoose only needed about a 7.25" steer tube, I bought a fork with a steer tube of 7.75". I bought a brand new Rockshox Dart 3 off ebay for $100. Today I got my new 2009 Giant Rincon frame in and it turns out that it needs a fork with a steer tube closer to 8.5". So I now need to find a $100 fork with a longer steer tube and I need to get rid of my current fork. I have already searched ebay a little for $100ish forks and couldn't find anything close to the quality of my Dart 3. My Dart 3 had Lockout, adjustable dampening, and adjustable rebound. Any tips for a fork with similar specs for $100 would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone is interested in buying my current fork, PM me. I'm planning on putting it up on eBay tonight so PM me early if you are interested.
EDIT: It is a 1 1/8" dia steer tube, and if I could just replace the steer tube that would work for me too if that is possible.
EDIT 2: I found this steer tube on jensons site and wonder if any of you have ever replaced one?
