    I think it would be worth the extra money to get the 120mm fork. I have a Mach 4 and itís a fantastic bike. It can handle much bigger trails than I think it should be able to but pedals great.

    Factions would be sweet on that bike. We Are Ones ride really well. If you want something burlier do a Faction rear with a wider front rim.
