I'm rebuilding an old mongoose xr-200 for a hucking singlespeed. What are the CHEAPEST longer travel forks and rear shocks available? I really don't care about quality, I just need sommore travel on the thing, like 100-110mm in the front and anything more than the 2" I have in the back. I also only want rear shocks w/ springs. Just for emphasis: I have NO concern for quality. Whatsever.

Thanks people.

I'm thinking any cheap-o rear shock might just fail under heavy abuse.. so it might not be worth it. but what do i know
have you checked this place out?

Dude, I all about a bargin, I don't know of anyone who goes as cheap as I have in the past, but that comment is cause for concern.
I would suggest that you develop some concern for quality, especally for a huckable bike. Crap will let you down, on a good day you will be walking home, on a bad day you could get injured.
