In the future I want to upgrade to discs , but need a sharkfin (lol) so does everyone else. But I would admit the v brakes on this are fantastic.

Anyone have any ideas where to get repair/rebuild kits for the front forks and rear shock ( front -rock shox Judy xl rear- fox vanilla rx)

Cheers Tim

Judy XLs are pertty easy to service, they don't look like they've had a hard life, so would be supprised if anything is badly in need of replacing. in fact that is an immaculate looking example of the GC FSRs.

My mate had a yellow one exactly like that. Was doing some DH with him and the top of the XL's came flying out with the spring and got him right between the eyes :lol: Was so so funny at the time, left a round red mark between his eyes for weeks :lol:
Awesome bikes though!

Apparently there was an issue with a few of the Judy XL's, I had heard of 1 other pair doing the same thing BITD...
