I just bought a 2009 Jamis Kromo with the stock Suntour fork. I really want a better, not neccesarily new, fork. I'm 6 foot, 220lbs. I honestly just got into dirt jumping so I'm not sure what the best travel is for heavier guys and what not. I'm also trying to stay under $200.

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Cheap and solid. The Comp model is in the $200 range I believe.
