Default Re: Are my forks bad?

I check the forks when i took my bike to the store today, the forks move around 1/2" forward at the shock parts only when i apply the brakes,they don't move at the threaded part that connects the forks to the bike.

I'll probally put my old non suspension forks back on when i buy some side pull caliper brakes to bolt to it,i'll probally find a set for around $20.

I did get my bike up to 31.7mph tonight.
Today i replace both my chains with heavy duty chrome 1/2"x1/8" diamondback bmx chain which matches my stock chains and cost me $10 per 116 link chain,rides a lot better(110links peddal/112links engine).I also bought a schwinn kickstand and rear view mirror at $7 each.
