    Rockshox Recon Silver or X Fusion Slide RL2?

    I have a 2012 Diamondback overdriver 29er that i got in november. This is my first bike so i am still a noob at all of this. I do know however that the stock Suntour XCT is a pile of crap. I have rode with it for a while and it is just time to upgrade.

    I would like to keep my budget at around $300. Which would you pick between the two and why?

    I dont do any big jumps or anything, i have been doing time trials at the local park though.

    Let me know what you think!

    Check the Suntour upgrade thread in the beginner's section. You can get a Raidon for $175.
    Or you can get a Recon Gold TK from Random Bike Parts for $238. The Recon is ~2 lbs lighter than the Raidon, but the Raidon is getting really good reviews as a budget friendly fork.

    Do you have a link to the recon gold? They only showed one fork for the 29er

    Looks like they took it down. It was on Random Bike Parts and Cross Lake Sales (same company I think). I'd keep looking, I'm sure it'll come back up.
