    One last try for a new fork

    I posted this in another forum but it seemed to get little response. My buddy said to "Go Clydesdale".

    I need a little bit of help.

    I bought a Specialized Hard Rock Sport Disc. Nice bike but it came with some cheaper components, or rather some components that weren't made for a guy bigger than 180lbs.

    The fork is shot.... I am a 275lbs guy (yeah yeah, keep the wise cracks out) and I need a heavy duty fork to replace the old one. I am not the best when it comes to shopping for replacement parts because there is just so much out there. I need something heavy duty obviously.

    Does anyone have any suggestions (preferably parts)? I am looking to stay under $200.

    I am a casual rider that loves the more extreme "can I live through this?" type of stuff but I seem to be stuck more into following the other guys through the easier stuff.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    I'd look at a lower-end DJ or all mountain fork with coil springs. Something like a Marzocchi AM3 or DJ4 in 120mm flavour (the Hardrock should handle 120mm OK, more may be an issue).
