So after dusting off the bike for a first ride in 2014 I noticed the forks had really gone off and there was very little damping, and they were struggling to hold any air pressure. I sent them to TF Tuned and was told my 2002 Rock Shox SIDs were beyond repair :-(
Since then I have sourced some new SID World Cup XXX forks, a new post mount Hope Mono Mini and new smaller 160mm Alligator Aries disc. The results are amazing and here are some photos of the slightly updated look...
