The XC 30 TK has 100mm of travel, external rebound adjust and is a great entry level XC/trail fork. It's versatile too. You can run rim brakes while you save up for disc brakes since it is compatible with both rim and disc.
Set your own star nut. The Park Tool TNS-1 Threadless Nut Setter is a great way sink your nuts to the perfect depth every time.

I picked one of these up at my LBS a couple of months ago to replace worn out forks of my sons entry level trail hardtail. It is a great shock for the price, and is all one would need for recreational riding.
