Might sound a bit of an odd selection, but it's for a proflex frame and I reckon they're the best forks for it.

This needs to be a cheapish build so £40ish budget( maybe a little more) Less is more an all that.

1 1/8" steerer. A-head preferred.

Anyone got anything like?? :D

Would probably go to £50 - £60, if that makes a difference.

Or maybe a set of RC31s for the E4, then I can use the Evos off that. :D

Anybody?? :D :D

You'll be very lucky to get a working Vector for less than £60!

I had PACE RC-35's on mine - looked great IMO.

Looks like I'll be lucky to get anything at the moment. :D

I'd rather have the Pace option to be honest, but I reckon I'd probably consider anything that wasn't Rock Shox. :wink:

I've a set of RC35's which are missing one pair of elastomers and have slightly crimped upper legs, advertised on here a while back but got no takers. Elastomers are alledgedly still available from pace and the legs have been crimped since the mid 90's, only noticeable when you strip them down. Also got a spare set of stanchions (also crimped) and the original threaded steerer. the thredless steerer has a nice gouge about halfway down from a stray half bearing, works fine but makes fitting and removing the crown race a bit of a faff. These forks are far from A1 condition but worked great untill the soft elastomers disintegrated a couple of years back. £30 posted?
