Looking for the best sub $500 for my Surly karate monkey.

Started to look at

Or something from this list

I use the Strand fork. It's solid construction, not flismy, impossible to bend.

or this:
Tenneco Marzocchi Suspension - 2013 Extreme Freeride/Downhill forks - 888 RC3 EVO V.2 TITANIUM



(they do have non-Ti version if your wallet is only "large" instead of "giant")

I'm a big fan of the X-fusion air forks, I've had one on my last few bikes and can honestly say It feels as "plush" as any basic fox air fork I've ridden. Plus it looks nice.



It's an X-fusion velour 140mm.
