    good 100mm shock?

    I'm looking to rebuild an old bike and don't want to break the bank. I'm looking for a 100mm air shock. The only "features" I really need are rebound and a lockout. Looking for decent quality as I am pretty hard on my equipment. I'm thinking $250 is the right budget. Any suggestions?

    RockShox Recon Silver R Fork 2012 at Price Point Rockshox has good quality forks even in the lower end 32mm stanchion range, you may also be interested in a Rockshox tora U-turn, they have been discontinued and can be found at a discount.I would steer clear of 30mm forks, too much flex.Oh no! no lockout, sorry, how about this?

    RockShox Tora 302 U-Turn - bobs-bicycles.com this one has lockout! you could find a better price elsewhere? you want an airfork? most likely not in your price range, maybe you can find an air Tora somewhere heavily discounted...maybe.The Tora 302 in one tough reliable fork.

    This is in regards to a rear shock.

    I am also looking for a 100mm air fork though, so your information is definitely not wasted! But my fork budget is around $450. Thanks.
