Hi,
Can anyone tell me what they use for the o rings I see used on stantions to measure sag and where to get them? I am presuming they are just simple plumbing o rings?

Cheers, James.

Exactly what I use :) and you don't need to take things apart to fit them!

You can probably find the rubber o-ring in your local B&Q or whatever, probably in bags of 50 :shock:

I have some knocking about somewhere, will have a look and check the size...

Hi,
Thanks for the responses. I had thought of a cable tie but I have the forks apart anyway so I thought a ring would look a little smarter. Haven't yet looked in any diy shops yet but will keep a lookout.

Cheers, James
