Reply To: Struggling with fork upgrade decision


My first bike was a Talon 3.  I still own it and enjoy riding it.  I upgraded the fork to a Rockshox 30 Gold TK Solo Air fork and it made a big difference in the type of trails (mostly intermediate/a few advanced) and the speed that I was comfortable riding. Had the shop mount the fork.  I also put on a WTB Pure Gel saddle.  These upgrades were good investments in my opinion and allowed me to be more confident and comfortable on the bike.
