Got quite a selection of Rock Shox Judys and a pair have been fitted with Englund air cartridges. They hold air well so all the seals are good. Is it worth keeping them and using them or should I stick with the standard damper and replace the elastomers with springs (this has been done in most of the pairs I have).

better than a standard elastomer/damper combo

lighter and more adjustable than a spring/damper combo

They're excellent IMO, more adjustable, reliable, lighter, better, adjustable damping too.

Want to sell them? :lol: :lol:

I had a set - held air fine for about a decade. Sold the fork and the new owner never complained. Can't think of any reason to get rid of 'em?!
