Fork Replacement - Trek Hybrid
I did something stupid... and now I need a new fork.
I need to replace the fork which was on my Trek Navigator 100 hybrid.
It was a RST Com I CT (50mm). I have found replacements, but they are
all sold without the steering tube. I can't figure out how my steerer
tube detaches from what's left of my fork. It looks like it was just
pressed in. There does not seem to be a bolt or nut of any kind which
holds the tube fork.
Q. -- How do I remove the existing tube? With a rubber mallet?
Q. -- How do I determine if the existing tube is still good? Even after
screwing up mine, the handlebars turned left right with no apparent
binding or resistence.
Q. -- How do I install a new fork with the existing tube? Mallet again?
Q. -- A new RST of same model costs $85. Although it's a hybrid, I'll
never ride it anywhere but streets, paved trails, groomed trails and
parks. Is there any reason to consider any other fork instead? If so,
