    Nashbar frame - what fork

    Have a 26" nashbar mountain bike frame I put together and wonder what fork and amount of travel people would recommend for this frame. Currently just have a cheapo springer fork off a wally schwinn on it so I can ride it. I ride somewhat fast but rocky/rooty, singletrack.

    I like the names Rockshox, Marzocchi, Fox, RST, shoot for a Nashbar Frame, any oil dampened fork would be a fair compliment. 100+cm of travel is good. Fox are usually pricey, but some deals can be had on eBay and CL. Always buyer beware on the used market though. But even I rebuilt my Fox this winter. If I can, little girls can.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I have a Performance MTB frame, probably pretty similar. I put a 100 travel Rockshox Reba on it. 80-120 is fairly typical, the Reba can go any of those and I had it set to 100. Great ride.

    Some friends of mine have had good experience with a Manitou Minute 100mm fork on similarly priced bikes. Nice performing and not the price of a Fox unit.
