    Upgrade Maverick 5.0 or sell and buy Warrior 3.0?

    I've put about $100 into my current bike (Actually an 07 Quantum II, but similar to the Mav 5) and the last thing I was planning was to upgrade to a Rock Shox Recon fork (about $150 from ebay)

    I stopped by my local Performance Bike and they were closing out an 07 Warrior 3.0 for $399 (I got my Quantum II for $299)

    The question is...
    Should I just keep what I have and upgrade the fork and be done, or try and sell it and buy the Warrior?

    decisions...decisions....Pls help

    Well, they use the same frame design but the Warrior uses double butted tubes so it's going to be a little lighter. You didn't really say what areas you spent the $100 in upgrades on but the Warrior 3.0 is a full drivetrain upgrade over the Quantum 2, and the wheels use a nicer rim (WTB SX24 vs OEM Alloy).
