Now what about someone over 200 lbs. I'm 217 and going down but will these forks hold up. I heard you can upgrade the springs?The Airborne Guardian if you are under 200lbs.(because of the 28mm stanchions of the fork)
It doesn't have the bike path Suntour fork.
It has decent drive components with Sram X5.
Minimal assembly. There is a good Youtube vid.
They will answer the phone and help with any questions.

You can change the spring to match your weight but the fork is made in other models with larger diameter stanchions 30 and 32mm(which is what you find in better 100mm forks). 28mm gets flexy with your weight. The Seeker has an air fork with no spring change needed and will not be flexy. Worth it for heavier riders. Alternatively you can upgrade the Guardian fork to an even better Manitou Tower Pro.

This makes sense. Try to buy used if you can. Look for something that does NOT have a bottom of the barrel pogo stick/boat anchor Suntour fork. A crappy fork was the single biggest detriment to having fun on my bike.I like secondhand in that price range. 29ers have been around long enough to be on the secondary market, especially hardtails.
