I have a Norco Bush Pilot, I think it's a 92 model (is there a way to tell for sure?) with rigid forks that I am considering upgrading. I haven't pulled the fork off but the outside diameter of the steer tube is 1 3/8, so I hope that as it is cro-moly it is likely a 1 1/8 inside.
I live on a gravel road which quickly goes to potholes when the rain starts and my elbows/shoulders just don't absorb as much bouncing around as they used to. So I'm figuring some inexpensive shocks and probably new front brakes to fit them (I have centre pulls now).
Can this bike do the upgrade? And if so then what would be a good affordable (read low budget ) suspension fork?
