can you guys recomend a good one!
that fall into his price range. Your best bet is to go to Jenson USA, www.jensonusa.com and use their search. You can enter the price range at the top of the page and it will show you all forks they carry in that price range.
Just to name a few, the Manitou R7 Elite, Marzocchi MX Comp, Rock Shox Revelation 351 or 327, Fox Vanilla R, and Fox Float R, all 06 models fall either with in or slightly above his price point.
My personal recomendation for the most bang for the buck would be either Marzocchi, or Rock Shox. You'll get the most features for the dollar spent with these two, and great reliability.
If you shop around you may even be able to get an 05 model at a greatly reduced price. There are still a few of them out there. So there's your starting point, so get out there and surf around and see what's available.
