I would like to upgrade to crappy 100mm Dart 3 forks on my Kona Cinder Cone. Can anyone recommend an Air Shock about 130-140mm that would fit the bill? I dont want to be spending silly money, Id be happy to pick a 2nd hand one off the bay but I could do with some recommendations so I know what to search for.
The Rock Shox Recons that came with my bike are ok, although they are 120mm travel. The anodising on the stanchions is starting to wear off though after 2 years and I think it need an oil top up as the rebound is getting a bit sluggish again.
Isn't the cinder cone a 100mm xc bike? I'd check with kona whether or not it is warrantied for that much travel before buying anything. If it isn't, you would be better off selling the frame and buying something designed for longer travel like a 456, blue pig or Bfe and get a set of revs/sektors
