Hello guys. I did a dj/street build a month ago in a almost free old bike, and I wanted to upgrade to a better suspension.
The fork on the bike is a 50cm Chinese type fork.(the bike is wheel24)
Can you guys that know more than I , say good 80-100mm forks to put on my bike, maybe I’ll have to get a 26 wheel fork right? The price was like 50-200€ but if you guys think that there’s something much better and good I could get little more money. (The fork has to be new)
Cheers (you can see my bike in the profile)

Sup dude
I had a 24" bike for a while and the best option is to run a lowerd 26" fork. If you can get your hands on a pretty decent fork (Fox, Rockshox, Marzochhi, ECT) and take it to a shop thats fairly compitent in suspension then you should be able to have them lower it from 100mm to 80mm. This would counteract the smaller wheel in the fork, and still give you enough suspension.
Hope that helps homie.
