I ride pretty aggressively cross country and trail in colorado, and occasionally will go to the bike park and do some jumps.
I recently bought a specialized hardrock 29er for my wife, who's a novice rider. The price was right, and the bike is great for her. The problem is I want to ride it sometimes, but the fork sketches me out. First: it sucks compared to my fox fork on my 26" bike and second: I'm afraid it's going to break on me.
The fork is an 80mm SR suntour. Does anybody have any suggestions for reasonably priced replacements? I don't want to change the geometry too much. I think the idea is if i put some money into the fork, we could put it on her next bike if/when she decides to upgrade.
