Hey y'all! I'm new to this forum. Haven't mountain biked much in the last 10 years. I used to ride a lot in other places I've lived (Richmond, VA, Moab, So WA Cascades, Bellingham, WA). I live in Portland, OR and for a city surrounded by so much natural beauty there's not much decent mountain biking close by. I have an old Trek 7000 hardtail that's been a great bike over the years. When the old Rockshox Judy fork blew out I replaced it with a rigid carbin fork fork and put slicks and fenders on it for city riding. I just built a 750w mid drive ebike out of a Jamis Dakar mtb which is now my city and trail bike. I'd like to convert my old trek back to a XCmtb but need a new suspension fork. I have a blown out Manitou Splice from the Jamis that I bought (I put a nice used Fox Float on that) but I can't seem to find a rebuild kit for the Splice. I hear it's a crappy fork and may not be worth rebuilding anyway. I trying to do this for as little $$$ as possible but it seems you get what you pay for and I want something that will work well for years. Wish I had kept the blown Judy fork I had. What do you recommend I get for my Trek hardtail that would preferably be under $300. Thanks!
