    fork recommendation

    Just started riding a SS (1FG: rigid) and found many funs and benefits.
    But I feel like I need a front shock while riding down rocky trails like in Santa Terresa Park; I don't feel like enjoying it. And after riding that kind of trail I have sore wrists. I don't think my skill is good enough to handle the rigid yet. So I want to try a suspension fork.
    Please recommend a suspension fork; I am thinking about 80 mm and good price.
    Thanks in advance.

    Good price and 80mm? Marzochi MX comp is your friend. $285 MSRP. I got mine about a month ago at pricepoint.com for $215 and installed it myself. Best 80mm fork at that price PERIOD. Not alot of adjustments but its built to last. Smooth and plush. Last time I checked Pricpoint was out of them but Jenson has them at the same price.

    Skareb Super with lockout was always my fav. Lightweight with a lockout for those climbs. greenfishsports.com usually has some good deals.

    Rock Shox and Fox have good deals...
    http://shopping.yahoo.com/s:Individu...nd=Rock%20Shox 9 (Rock Shox deals, US$ i think.)
    http://www.bizrate.com/bicycles_equi...--364755-.html (Fox prices... higher quality then Rock Shox.)

    Otherwise go for the best! Go for Marzochi!
