Wow that bike brings back memories, a friend of mine growing up had the same year and model back at middle school, but being young I seem to remember his having 24" wheels.

Get those forks replaced with some on this site, they're quite common.

I have a pair of them forks, sadly though they will not fit, they came of my girls 13" Rockhopper.

I have a silver pair too. Was thinking of sticking them on a bike but I can do without.

ah nice offers!

the main problem is: I really dig the frame colours. The bright red in combination with the white is great. Specialized also had a red one with black letters but that contrasts a lot less.

The fork you guys offer is a Specialized one or does any fork fit?

edit: to not look noobish: of course any 1 1/8" fork with the right length of tube will fit, but I mean 'fit' like fits nice ;)

oh and the top tube of my current threadless bend fork is 23,5cm
