    2012 Scott Spark Comp 29er fork question

    Hi, I purchased the bike above new last year for about $1,700. Like the bike but have read and heard that the front suspension (Rock Shox XC/32/TK are fairly lame) and after riding it for a year, I may agree. The springs squeak and they do not seem buttery. I would like to upgrade within reason (based on the overall bike). Any recommendations on which shocks to upgrade to? Thanks!

    OK, thanks guys. I guess my final question, which should have been my first question is do you concur that if you were going to spend $500 on an upgrade for this particular bike that you would choose to do the front suspension first? Is this money well spent on this upgrade? Thanks

    For my bike (2012 Scott Scale Comp),the fork made a huge difference in performance and stability but upgrading the wheels really woke it up. My only regret was not getting a 15mm through axle fork so keep that in mind if you are considering a wheel upgrade in the near future? (Assuming you have 9mm qr?) For $500 I'd have to try either a Reba or Tower Pro.
