    Hey I need a 4 inch fork for my new project. Singlespeed steelhead with 24s. I need to crunch my budget so can't spend more than $200 on the fork. Any thoughts? Currently I'm thinking a 2005 DJ3 as it's cheap, apparently ligher, and on eBay for $189 new. Any other suggestions? I'm open to anything. I'll be running without front brake so disc/cantis don't matter.

    I'll probably get a standard axle and not 20mm due to fork and hub pricing unless that's a dumb idea...

    I am pretty happy with my manitou black, I paid 40 bucks for it.
