Front suspension??

Learned peers, I am in need of your collective counsel. I plan to fit suspension forks to the Lynxx and would like to know where to start looking. Being 20" forks there doesn't appear to be a wide selection, has anyone else been on the hunt for these animals?

I've hear that White make forks suitable for 20" front wheeled 'bents. Try starting your search there.

Cheers,
Graeme

Hi all, just bought a set of these http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... =p3907.m29 for around $250 AUD, which is really quite reasonable. I priced the exact same fork from Optima direct for $295 US plus whatever postage they slap you with. Looooooooooove the web :wink:
