I'm building up a Sette Reken to replace my 1996 GT Backwoods!
The GT has a RockShox Recon Silver TK that I've been marginally happy with. I'm moving it over to my 11 year old daughter's bike to replace the Dart 2 on her rig.
For the Reken build, I'm stepping up to either (I'm thinking) a Manitou Minute Expert or a X-Fusion Velvet RL2.
I'm planning a 15mm axle for the fork, using a set of Mavic Crossrides.
The Reken geometry is set up for 80-100mm travel.
Those two forks should be available in the ~$400 range, and seem to be "clyde friendly"
I'm 6'2, 245, built like a horse, but a trail sloth.
Thoughts on fork selection?
