got this bike for 900 bucks a couple of months ago and it was great..

the only thing i've upgraded is the brakes (changed to xt m785, i didn't like the m8000 lots of problems) and got a shimano trail clipless pedal for it.

the only problem so far is the fork which is a Manitou Machete Comp 100m travel... it has no mid support or whatever even if i put it at 10% sag, i always bottom out it. i am kinda looking for a replacement/upgrade fork that is not expensive. i was wondering if this cheap bike is worthy of a fox 32 stepcast but the fork is much more expensive than the bike it might not look good on it if you know what i mean.
