    Rockshox XC2 vs XC30?

    I have a diamondback response xe that needs new forks. I riding rocky and rooty trails that have a few small double jumps. I am looking to spend only $200 because the bike isnt worth enough to put money into. I really need a full suspension bike but i cant afford it so i need to make do. Please help me because i dont know which one would be better. Thanks.

    The XC 32 is an "air spring" fork a XC 30 has a coil spring.

    Did you buy the bike new? If it has a Suntour fork maybe you could take advantage of the upgrade option/program.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    +1 on the Suntour upgrade program.
    The 26" raidon is a much better choice than the 2 listed and can be bought for I think $150.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Not exactly. The XC32 is available with either a coil spring or an air spring. The difference is size. The number stands for the diameter of the upper tubes - XC32 is 32mm, XC30 is 30mm. The XC32 is a stronger, stiffer fork, even with the coil spring.
