    Fork Help for my FSR XC

    Hey guys here is my question. I want to upgrade my 07 FSR XC fork i have the recon 335 100mm coil. I want some more travel and according to specilized I can do up to 130mm here is my confusion.. I know this is a trail bike so I am not trying to add a 160mm fork to make this into a DH bike. I love this bike nd dont mind investing some money in the fork, I do ride very aggresive some drops here in there love doing real tech trails I also weigh 240lb . I added the Azonic outlaw wheels for strength being that I broke a spoke on the stock mavic's any here is where I am confused which fork?? I am looking at Rock Shox Revelation 426 coil uturn or the Pike 426 Coil Uturn why the pike cause of the 20mm thru axle and I can convert my outlaws to match do you guys think its worth going for the pike and thru axle to set it up bombproof so to say. Or go with a Marchozzi xc 700 sl or a Fox F120 and forget the thru axle all together and go for something light and some more travel remember I do weigh 240lb so weight isnt my biggest issue. And yes I know I can get another bike but I like this one and dont mind upgrading. What do you guys think any help would be appreciated thanks again

    Big guy going aggressive? Definitely go for the 20mm setup.

    I'm still wishing for an 32mm stanchion 80mm XC fork with a 20mm axle (the ultimate clyde race bike setup)
