What is the best fork I can buy for $200-$300 price range? I want around 100 mm of travel. I am willing to try any brand of fork. Please post any good deals you find on the internet.

It really depends upon your bike and the type of riding you do. What type of riding -- XC, Dirt Jump, Freeride, All Mountain???? What is your weight? What riding style -- aggressive, laid back, big drops, smooth pedaling??? Give us some more specific information and there are folks on this forum who can help you.

Depends on what you're looking for in a fork.

Want a bomber XC fork that's not going to require much maintenance? The Marzocchi MX Comp with ETA is the best you're going to find.

Aggressive cross country 100mm. travel, 2006 Manitou Minute 3:00. Wish I could justify spending the bucks for my backup hardtail but I just don't ride it much.

The only reason I said try the search function is because you will see alot of threads for people looking for a great bargain fork.

However, I just picked up a Manitou R7 Elite for $170. For my style riding it fits me perfect & from all the reviews it sounds to be a great fork for the buck.

I too, recently faced this dilemma. Agressive xc with a trek hardtail. I just bought a tora 302 u-turn (85mm-130mm) from blueskycycling.com. Seems perfect, and I got it shipped from west coast to east on 2-day air for less than $190. But if I had the same price range as you, I 'd get that brand new Revelation that's for sale on ebay now (less than 24 hrs and it's only $207 bid right now) I heard those things are as smooth as you can get.

Other then it being perfect. How does the tora 302 feel on drops, climbs, turns & obstacles?
Only reason I ask is because I passed the Tora up for the R7 Elite.
