Hi,
Was initially going to build this frame up using Project 2's, but I'm now thinking about suspension.
Have a budget of up to £100, what are your fork recommendations from the early 2000's. I'm thinking about 3" travel and it also needs a disk mount, also would prefer something light weight Will be used for riding on mountains and aggressive off road,
Many thanks,
Steve

Fox, although you'll have to get a bargain for under £100. If you are happy to tinker, buy some that are leaking oil for £50-70 and then buy a seal kit and some oil and voila. Fox started in 2003 I think, my leaking '03 Float RLCs (current retail £700+ :shock: ) were about £65 from eBay. Once serviced they've been perfect, in fact the best shocks I've ever owned, plusher even than my '08 F100 RLCs.

I've heard and read very good things about Marzocchi's from 2000 onwards... I had a pair back in 96 and they were total rubbish!

My new bike has Bomber Z5 '01s - havne't had chance to try them out yet but will let you know - I do know that they do pop up extremely reasonably...
