Default Forks for a Clydesdale Rider

Just wondering if anyone could recommend a fork for me. I currently
own a Rock Shox Pilot and find it very spongy.

Any recommendations??

The Pilot is a POS (AFAIK), but if your /only/ complaint is sponginess then
get some stiffer springs.

If you really mean it's FLEXY, then you should look for something new.

Yes, I would say it is "flexy". Can you buy new springs for the pilot?
