    Help me pick a fork....TransAm 27.5

    I'm building a TransAm 27.5 and need to order a fork next. I'm new to MTBs but not new to cycling, I have not owned a MTB in 20yrs! I really have no idea what to look for and there seem to be alot of options.

    The Frame is set-up for a 140mm fork. Is there anything in the $400-500 range that is a good fork? If I really need to spend more for a quality fork I will but I'm trying to keep this build in check. If it matters, I'm building this up as a Single Speed but may end up a 1x10.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Rockshox Revelation RCT3 150 27.5" Fork > Components > Forks > Suspension Forks | Jenson USA

    This is pretty solid fork from what I hear, in your price range. I would find out for sure, but I bet you can run a 150 on that.

    edit: looks like 15 mm thru is on back order.

    I got a brand new Rock Shox Sektor Gold RL for about just under $350. Its not as fancy as the Revelation, but its shares a lot of the same parts and works great as an everyday fork.
