Forks are expensive. Probably around 150-200 for the level of fork the 6700 SLR comes with.

Go for the IH, its a good bike and less headaches.
Yeah but a nice fork for $200 if I can get the Trek for $300 is only $50 more than the new IH and I have a solid bike right?

Just curious as to why the Trek is missing it's fork?

Also, neither of these is constructed for downhill use. If that is what you want to do you will trash them in no time and would be better served saving your money for something a bit more durable.

I'm not sure where the path will take me, never done it. I'm going to try it all. When you say durabel are you talking about the frame or components? If its the components then i'm okay with that, I will just upgrade them as they break. If it's the frame then might have to step it up.
