Hi.
Sunn http://www.flickr.com/photos/thedevinecomedy/8639125557/in/photostream
4x images.
I have looked at the catalogue, and can't decide if it's a 1999 or earlier model.

Its new to my stable, so excuse the rust and crud!

The "999" means 1999: http://www.le-jurassien.com/sunn/catalogues/gammes99.php

Ta.
I did wonder, but with no top tube decals, I was a little unsure.
Real: backside-up, head-down riding position, & a cracking good training ride out on the road as it puts me exactly in the same position as my road bike (had both bikes "fitted" recently).

An eBay Special!
£125, bought specifically for winter training on the road to help with my road riding in the summer months.
I'm booked into the BORS in May now too!

This is the bike fitting: https://www.yousendit.com/download/UVJo ... eEExZXNUQw

Could be the forks need a service. Compare the height of yours to the brochure and you've lost an inch of travel :wink:

An inch!
That's why I am having no luck with the fairer sex!

Who services such things I wonder?
Being 1999 model (the bike, not me) - is I am a Retro Bike man, or is I am not a Retro Bike man?

I've got a completely flat 97 Sunn obsys55 fork. Haven't even looked at it yet - I'll be interested to know how you get on! Never touched a sus fork so it'll be a steep learning curve.

Me too! Mine holds air for a while but leaks oil pretty badly. Anyone know if they take generic industrial seals of some sort? I've stripped down plenty of modern forks but I've not got a clue on where to get seals, or how much oil it would take.

You can be sure of one thing: I will not be touching mine!
Air? Can it be pumped up?
