    Considering I think my RST was faulty from the beginning, my LBS will either replace it or if I pay some extra money then they'll give me a better fork. What are some good 100mm travel forks in the 120-180 (150-220 dollars) euro price range?

    Thanks,
    -Drunken Chicken

    EDIT: For urban assault/urban freeride/some trails.
    EDIT2: I'm currently looking at an MZ-Race for 170 euros, is it a good fork?
    EDIT3: MZ-Race is, in CAD, 266.

    I don't think many people want to convert euro to whatever their national dollar is.

    Thats like 300$cdn right, Mz Race seems fine for that range.

    I'll convert as soon as possible, sorry for the inconvenience. When I posted that I wanted to get an MZ-Race at www.mbuk.com they didn't seem to like it at all. Hmm...
    Oh well, hold on for the conversion.

    Well I am not responding because I really know nothing of forks in that category.

    I just think other may have a better understanding when converted.

    I found a site that does conversions.

    120 euros = 187.85 CAD = 155.26 USD
    180 euros = 281.67 CAD = 232.82 USD

    Hope this helps!

    MBUK really isnt a nice forum, i used to use it abit, but i jsut dont like it there, its nothing compared to this forum, southern Downhill is a pretty good forum aswell

    And i would suggest an MZ Race aswell

    OK, thanks. As for MBUK, it's not for entry level riders, that's for sure!!

    Good definition.
    Oh yeah, I just cycled to my LBS and asked how much an RST Gila T5 costs; they said around 140 euros! If this fork messed up and the warranty would replace it I could also choose to pay 30 euros and then I'd get an MZ-Race... But for now the fork is holding on, too bad eh? j/k
