Re: Front Fork Replacement
I consider a suspension fork to be a vital safety item on older roads and in construction areas. It makes it easier to "hang on" to the bars when you hit that huge bump.
I bought a few threaded forks before I found one that would fit well. Just don't spend too much when you buy one. Some forks, like the older Marzocchis have a replaceable steering tube (its held in place by a couple of allen bolts). I was able to order steering tubes of different lengths on EBay.
