ok, I'm not really into the MB scene that much...even though I do ride trails and stuff ocasionally. Right now, I have my dad's old MB-zip. It is steel so it does have a little flex, but I think I need some sort of suspension. If I wanted to upgrade my fork...what would be a good place to start? What kind of fork is good for a somewhat non-experiecned rider? Any info you guys could give me would be much appreciated. Right now, I'm looking at the ~$200 price range...how far will that get me?

thanks in advance.

just buy a new mtb, instead of 200 on a fork.. spend 200 towards a 6-800 dollar hardtail with suspension.
