    For a mongoose dolomite, any high-quality 100mm suspensions all start around $150-$200. Though the Walmart quality suspension forks are like $40 but they are spring suspension and not air suspension.

    Since you decided to neg rep, I will clarify.

    We are simply suggesting thata suspension fork under$100 new is going to be a heavy piece of garbage and likely a trip to the dentist when it fails.

    If he gets lucky maybe can find an old used bluto that needs new seals and a rebuild for that price.

    At those pricepoints, rigid forks are better. I love suspension, but a solid rigid fork is better than a crappy suspension fork.

    "Quality" really is one of those adjectives that needs an adverb to properly describe. Everything is at a level of quality. Some good quality and some poor quality. I think of "Walmart quality" as poor quality, but that's me.

    Ah!!!
    With bikes, I'd always thought that "Walmart" and "quality" were two words that should never be together. I should have been looking at that as "Walmart-quality"....
    Thank you!
