    29er Forks

    Hello everyone.

    My current setup is a Soma juice with a very old White brothers 80mm air fork. The white brothers is light and I keep high pressure as I like doing a lot of rock hopping. I just got a new wheel set up that will support a 15 axle in the front, and I think its time for a new fork!

    So, what are your opinions, what should I get?

    Also, I am pondering how much of a change it will be going from 80mm to 100mm, and if I will sacrifice any climbing ability..Are there any forks out there that have adjustability between maybe 80mm and 120mm? I would say I am very hard on my bike as well.

    Thanks!
    -Jesse

    P.S. Rigid is not an option.

    The usual suspects: Rock Shox Reba, Fox F29, Manitou Tower

    I'm building a Kona Unit, which is designed for an 80mm fork, and I just couldn't resist how good a deal the Marzocchi 44 Micro TST from Huck 'n' Roll is. It's a lot of fork for this bike, but at $270, I couldn't beat it. Now they can be had for $240 if I understand it correctly.
