I need help to choose what forks to buy under £200 for my Giant XTC SE. They are to replace stock RS J2's so they should have at least 100mm travel and lockout.

    I'd be getting a Rockshox Recon 351. Same internals as the more expensive Reba + Revelation forks but just a heavier design. You can pick them up on Merlin for a fair bit under £200 with the 10% discounts at the moment.

    I'll see you at the end.

    You'll see me on the floor.
  • the toras from rock shox are good if your not wanting to spend alot on new forks.

    I fitted marzocchi MX pro ETA 105mm to my 2005 XTC3 and i've been over the moon with them. Can't remember how much I paid but i'm sure it was under 200 quid.

    I rekon I'd go for the Marzocchi MX PRO ETA as well.... Looks like a damn good fork IMO, I'm sure its about £180 or u could get the MX PRO without the ETA system for £150ish, but its heavier than the ETA cos its got steel steerer and crown

    If you can stretch your budget to £225 you can get some Rock Shox Reba SL from Merlin Cycles. Ive just had a pair fitted on my XTC SX. Great set of forks!
