Hi!

Just scored the Bontrager fork on ebay (yey!), only trouble is it's missing the caps off the tops of the legs, anyone know of suitable replacements?

Oh, and I guess the steerers can be changed can't they? want to run a threadless steerer in it if I can......

Cheers
Stu

Bar end plugs work, if you want flat or shiny ones use roadie plugs. Steerer is replacable but the bolts on those forks often seize and make it impossible to do so without wrecking the bolts.
Also you will need the bonty brake bosses as they are not standard ones available in any shop, ask B3 on here for some - he made some perfect ones for my forks.

Fantastic, a fork it truely deserves, and it's the really nice 'composite' race lite fork not the welded one. Good score fella, and a pukka price!
