Morning all,

I'm building a HT AM bike (Identiti AKA) and would like some recommendations on front forks, i've ridden a limited amount of forks so would like a wider opinion.

I like riding DH and AM mostly, i'm not a jumper (anything over a few feet), but would like something could cope with the odd bear trap.

I'd be looking at something between 120-150mm in 650b. I've got no problems with looking at 2nd hand shocks .

Second-hand and 650b might be bit of a struggle since it's a somewhat new standard. You might find some take-offs from the new Giant Trance but then you'd need to deal with the stupid 1.25" steerer "standard".

If it was my money I'd probably be looking at the X-Fusion Sweep. Well for me I'd actually be looking at a 32mm stanchion fork because I'm not that hardcore but for travel > 140mm probably a 34 like the Sweep is a better idea.
