    Yeah man, I was looking for cheap shocks, too. Keep diggin you will find the 200 dollar-ish stuff all comes from China and won't support a rider over 200lbs...

    Garbage because they don't support heavier weight riders? Do they fail early? Shitty spring rates?

    The fact that they aren't designed for riders over 200lbs leads me to believe they are built with inferior parts, aka garbage. Be wary of cost deltas that large...

    Were talking about our suspension, a very integral part of how the bike handles.
