    For Sale Forks / pace / manitou / sr suntour

    Hi, I have very little idea about suspension forks so please go easy...but with the Pace or Manitous, would it be possible to change the steerer to a 1 1/8, 300mm one (yes, my bike is huge) - and if so, would this be easy to obtain?

    Suntour Fork Service/Upgrade

    Thanks, forgot to mention, it's got Magura HS11's fitted. Yes, I'd ideally prefer period correct but realise that limits me somewhat 🤦‍♂️

    Suntour Fork Service/Upgrade

    Thanks ishaw, that is definitely my overall plan. I was keen to bring the whole bike back to its former glory before riding it a few times, getting a feel for it and then changing out what I need to. Do you have any recommendations on replacements (specific Judy, Bombers around 1999-2000?)

    Suntour Fork Service/Upgrade

    My current bike refresh/build has the fairly budget Suntour SR MG80 (circa '99-'00) forks fitted. I am struggling to find much info on them. They're currently set to their stiffest setting (I weigh 100kg) but I'd like to service them for piece of mind. When doing this, is there a way to adjust...

    FH-MC18 hub (locking) washer question

    I recently acquired and took apart a FH-MC 18 hub. On cleaning, re-greasing and putting it back together again, I found that I couldn't set the correct tension on the cones against the bearings. Turns out that I have a washer missing (no.1 in the picture). Do any of you wise people know...

    Unknown gumwall 26' purchase

    I have struggled in my search to find a set of 26' Gumwall tyres at a decent/ budget price. As my current build is fairly budget I don't want to go crazy on the tyres. So I've taken a punt on a set of these on Ebay. Shipped from Italy. Does anyone else have any experience of these...

    Shimano Parallax Hub, what Freehub?

    Thank you. It's been very inspiring to lurk, and I'm now full of good (read 'expensive') ideas. From the fairly budget build I did when I found the site, I've already gathered a few excess shiney bits in my garage, so the theory stands true! I look forward to my new addiction (the others...
