Looking for a Z1 FR III

I'm looking to buy a Z1 FR III fork. Does anyone know how much they could cost in Canadian dollars?

Do you want like a conversion or something? Or are you looking for a place to buy them? They are really expensive though, 450 in American dollars plus you need the new hub which will be about 100. I was looking at that fork for my Bruiser 2 when I found mine, the 2004 Z1FR ETA, I had a post earlier about this and people actually recommended that over the Z1FR III. It was cheaper too, somewhere around 350 for everything, except you need a pump, which is around 30 american dollars. If you use a currency converter I get $678 CAD for the Z1 FR III (with the cost of a new 20 mm hub) and the 2004 Z1 FR ETA costs $431 CAD(about)

I don't want 150mm of travel, I want somewhere around 120-130. For the stuff I do, 150 would be overkill.

Which one has 150 mm, I thought the FR III did. Mine only has 130mm, I was worried about the extra travel when i got it, but it really doesnt affect my riding all that much.

Not everyone needs a new hub if they buy a 20mm axel fork.

Perhaps a Fox Vanilla 130 R/RLC? 400 USD and it has standard QR thing.

EDIT: 410 and 490, respectively, to be precise.

If anyone could recommend a good freeride fork, with 120-130mms of travel, and is less than $500 that would be great.

Do you have a hub that supports disc brakes?

The stance line sucks. My friend's Stance Kingpin had a blow seal before he even rode it. The seal also wouldnt stay in the lowers; it kept coming up the stanchions. Its really notchy and the black on the stanchions has started to wear off after only 1 ride.

For FR, I like the Z1 series.
