WTB - Front suspension Fork - Sydney

Postby foomanchoo » Sun Feb 22, 2009 5:49 pm

Hi all, i'm rebuilding a frame I have lying around so I can rejoin the trails.

Looking for a front suspension Fork.

Around 80 - 100mm travel.

Steerer size needs to be at least 1 1/8 and at least 180mm long.

Looking for something a little better than a coil sprung RST fork.

Other than that i'm open to suggestions

I've got a Rock Shox Judy S2 in 100mm, I think the steerer is around 190mm, but would have to confirm.

About 3 years old, with minimal use.

Let me know if interested.

Hi Mate,

I'm probably after something at around about the "Tora" level, or better.

Cheers
Glen

I can sell you some barely used toras with remote lockout for $150. The steering tube is 220mm

Where do RockShox Dart 2's lie in the scheme of things? I've got a pair I don't require, but the steerer is a very short 170 mm

Look out Foomanchoo.

Seargent Aushiker won't like you leaving your location out of your thread title.

Be very afraid. I'm sure he'll be along shortly to barate you suitably as he definately wasn't singling me out the other day when our two threads were right next to each other but for some reason I was subjected to his pitifull BS.

Oh dear, no postage options in the thread either. Man, you'll be in big trouble when the sarg arrives.

Thanks for the tip. I saw your thread and thought to myself. Why don't you just update it in accordance with the rules?

It's really not that hard.

They are entry level forks. Below the TORA's

... but still reasonable. Better than the Suntour XCR / XCM rubbish that Mongoose switched to for their post-2006 Tyax range. At least with Darts and Judy's you've got sufficient range in the preload and rebound damping to be able to set the fork up for 25% sag for most people. For me at 80kg we couldn't wind on enough preload and for my son at ~60kg we couldn't loosen it off enough. :evil:
