Just bought my son a Gary Fisher Opie. Got it for a smokin deal and am wondering what some good fork options would be. The stock fork doesnt seem all that great. Hes just starting off with mountain biking so i really dont want to buy a $500 fork. Any suggestions, tips, tricks or general advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It has 26" wheels on it, 17.5" frame and a stock RST Gila plus fork. Riding style will be mostly all mountain.

i bought the opie about 3 months ago for the frame. It feels extremely comfortable to me as i just made the switch from bmx DJ to mountain biking. Like i said i bought this bike for the frame. I am building it up as i go. I was looking at the 08' Marzocchi MX with LO to replace the current Gila forks. Anyone know if they will be compatable and how they compare to what i already have. i have read alot of reviews they all seem to be great and the price @ blueskycycling.com is pretty darn good.
