    New question here. Suggestions on the right fork upgrade for my Marin

    I'm hoping I can get some suggestions on a good fork upgrade for my 2009 Marin Alpine Trail

    I'm looking to keep the price at $400 and below... hoping maybe someone can point me to a fork the goes on sale often because I don't mind waiting for a great deal. I'm in Northwest Florida, so my riding is alot of trails with super tight turns and some drops... but nothing huge. Thanks for any suggestions that you can provide.

    thought about a light rigid?

    How about a On One Carbon for $150
    On-One 29" Carbon Fork

    Carver is a bit lighter for $40 more

    Manitou Tower pro can't be beat for the $$$ IMO. Easily under $400 often. Expert I think is the model below that, it can also serve well at a lower price point.

    I'll check out the Manitou. Anyone know where to find a RockShox Reba 29er... 2012 model on clearance maybe?

    Any other fork suggestions?
