    Why?
    If is solo air with mc damper, it's a pretty good fork.
    You could get Reba that's bit lighter and upgrade to rct3 damper but it's questionable gain over already pretty good fork.

    If you're looking for added travel, revelation can be found at good prices.

    I have the same bike and really like the Recon.
    If you want more travel you can remove spacers to gain 120mm, won't cost you anything.
    I ended up replacing the internals with the older sid dual air system set at 100mm and love it. I think the extra weight of the recon adds to the stiffness of the fork.
