    Best deal on 100mm air fork.....

    Ive been looking into replacing my Dart 2 lately with a 100mm travel (my LBS said I have to stay 100mm due to my frame warranty through giant) air fork. Ive been looking at the Suntour Epicon and the X-Fusion Enix RL. Is there anything else I should be looking at? If not, wheres the best deals to be had on the above forks?

    What's your budget/price range?
    What type of riding do you do?

    The Enix works amazing, and should really be more expensive. So for the price is is the best. The Dart weights a lot more due to the steel stanchions and steerer, so the Enix destroys it in that regard as well.
    Enix: 2, Dart: 0... game over.

    The Enix looks like a total steal! I've never owned a X-Fusion fork but I did own a O2 PVA rear shock that initially had a rebound issue and X-Fusion serviced it for free (including sending a call tag) within a week. After it was serviced, it was a fantastic shock. So I know they have good product and great service.

    I was going to suggest the Manitou Minute Pro which is a stellar fork, but it looks like the Enix can be had for $100 less.

    I got to say the X-Fusion Velvet RL for about $350 it's amazing for the money.

    It looks like these are competing against rockshox Reba level and undercutting them accordingly. How do these X-fusions compare to Rockshox or Fox as far as quality & performance?

    Right now I'm not having the best luck with Rochshox (two brand new forks, both shipped with issues).

    Mountain Bike Forks and Shocks Sale saw this one if your hub is 15mm and if your budget allows.

    You in a hurry to buy? Offseason is just starting and deals will be had, especially after Christmas. I would keep and eye on geartrade.com. Backcountry sells their returns there (but you can't return these items if bought from geartrade) and you should keep your eye out for a fork. Couple weeks ago they were selling near mint Marzocchi Corsa Ti Lockouts for $250 but someone snatched them up.

    Sorry, guess I should have mentioned my budget, i kinda assumed since I listed those two forks that my budget was implied. *Doh*. Im trying to stay as close to $300 as possible.

    Outside outfitters has the x-fusion enix for
    $263 and the velvet rl for $322.

    That said I just picked up a never installed 2008
    Fox F120 RLC for $350 from Craig's list.
    I would check there first as there are a lot of people
    Upgrading to the newest model year.
