    '05 Diamondback Topanga Comp - Seeking professional advice

    My '05 Diamondback Topanga Comp is currently sporting a Rockshox Judy TT fork.
    It's a great hard tail mountain bike and I'd love to make some upgrades, particularly the fork.
    I'm currently 192lbs. and would like to know what fork you'd go with (anything up to the $200 range).
    I obviously don't want to go any higher because the bike itself wasn't too expensive to begin with.
    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    -George

    Shop around online and you may be able to find a decent Marzocchi fork for around (or if you can stretch the budget, slightly above) your $200 price limit.

    change to the appropriate spring.

    don't bother changing the fork on that bike.

    i'd think that at 190 lbs the ride would already be too soft. Put in a 'firm' spring.
