New member here and just branched out of bmx into mtb.
i purchased a brand new giant revel 3 off Craigslist for 200 bucks. After the first ride I'm wanting to upgrade the forks,pedals, and maybe get some wider tires.
AS far as forks I see a ton, which one do you recommend for this bike and will it make a noticeable difference? Do I stick to 100mm to keep the geometry?
I know most will say don't upgrade but I'm on a budget and don't plan on going all out on this bike anyway.

Stay at 100mm. Keep in mind you don't have a tapered head tube so that will limit your choices. Depending on how much you weigh, I'd recommend either a Stans Crest or Arch EX wheel set.

From what I've read the Raidon is about one pound lighter than others in the $200 and under range. The stock Suntour sucks. You can find inexpensive wheelsets online. I plan to upgrade my wheels shifters and derailleurs first.
