In serious need of a new fork. HELP!

Hey guys I'm sure someone else has posted something similar but me finding it would be a waste of limited time. So I'm in NEED, not want, need of a new fork for my Trek 4300 Disc. My requirments are at LEAST 100mm of travel and my price range is MAX of $200.
Please help, you guys have been great so far.
Thanks,
Cole.

Guy,

There are least two threads on the first page that cover this ground, three if you count D-minors asking what advice he should ask for.

Seriously dude, someone covered this EXACT question just a few days ago. And someone else a few days before that. And someone else a few days before that. And someone else a few days before that. And someone else a few days before that. All the way back to the invention of the internet.

You didn't even have to use the 'search' feature for this one.

When you say searching is a waste of your limited time, it's going to be hard to convince other people to waste their limited time and answer your question.

To be fair, two of the front page posts are on 29er forks. However, this guy's asking the EXACT same question...a thread that's also on the first page: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...spension-forks

TrebelC: answering your question would be a waste of limited time. Poking fun at it, though, while still a waste, offsets that a little.

Didn't even notice he was too "limited on time" to use the search feature that he knows exists. That makes this a whole new level of entertaining.

Sorry guy, I don't have time to help you because I used it all making fun of you. I'm a very important man, you know.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the OP needed a new fork immediately two days ago. He or she has already bought one. All the other posts have been a waste of the forums limited time that could have been spent making others feel unwelcome.

I really do like sharing my knowledge and opinions about bikes and generally trying to be helpful. When someone makes it clear that their time is worth far more than mine, it becomes harder to want to help.
