New forks

Postby Cogsy1976 » Wed Jan 16, 2013 12:33 pm

Hi

Im looking for some options for a fork upgrade on my 2013 Cube Aim Disc it currently has Suntour XCM forks which to be honest I have found to be fairly good I use the bike for mainly XC as I have a 140mm Full Susser I use for the rough stuff, I downgraded from my Anthem X5 to the Cube to use as my winter bike. Im looking to replace the forks with something priced around the £100-£150 mark so looking at RS XC30's but is there anything else I should be looking at?
:D

The sensible man would go for the Recon from On-One - £99

Have some 100mm Recon Gold SL's (solo air) for sale in the classifieds that would suite it perfectly, fall in your budget and they are excellent condition.

You can't go wrong with the Recon Silver at £100. The canti studs unscrew - would b shooting yourself in the foot not to take them at that price.

For £160 these are better:
