I would get this one it has travel adjustment between 100 and 140 plus its only 1800 grams plus its a air fork. I have one and for the money its greatand so easy to work on. Just make a offer two times for like 210 and tell the person you wont go higher because of taxes and you will get it in like a week I got one from the same person and I love the fork and I got it for 210 dollars. For the money it is the best budget fork read reviews about it nothing but good.

Good luck getting parts or service a year from now.
Parts are easy to get and they are so easy to work on for the price the suntours are good forks. Do you own one I do and I have never had a problem with help from service or getting parts. Can you tell me a better fork for the money?? I like the rock shox forks but they are so heavy in this price range and you must change the spring if you are to big.

I've dealt with plenty of them, and they have a history of dropping support for forks quickly. It's just the nature of the game when 99% of the forks they make are entry level. Once they prove they'll provide continued support for a fork for several years, then I'll start considering them.

A better fork for the money? The Manitou Match comes quickly to mind; an excellent performer with a solid company behind it.

Ride report when you get back..... then another report after it breaks in completely
I've only owned a dart and an r7 super. Of course, there's no comparison to the dart. I only rode a few miles on a fairly easy trail that has some good rooty sections. I guess the best compliment is that I didn't notice it much. It does seem a little stiffer than the r7 and seemed to soak up the roots as well as the r7. The abs+ works good. I'm very happy with it, especially given the price.
