Good afternoon all,

I'm looking at different options for my 97 Eldridge Grade.

1. Manitou Pro C, an option at first sale.

2. A rigid fork of some kind.

3. A modern Sus fork such as RockShox 30 Silver TK Coil Forks - 9mmQR https://www.wiggle.co.uk/rockshox-30-si ... orks-9mmqr

I'm going to keep it V Brakes.

Thoughts?

Its best to keep it close to period correct so id say no to the 3rd option

rigid or suspension is kind of personal preferance depends on what turrain you plan on riding

Where do people buy forks from. eBay is a bit barren?
