That fork costs, and is worth more than any Next bike. You could, and I as well as others here would reccomend you look at new bikes first.
I am glad to see you are riding, but as the saying goes friends don't let friends ride junk.

The simple answer is, yes, you can. But as Hunter indicates, why? Next bikes are 1 of 2 brands I will on occaision, refuse to work on. The minimal quality level is hit or miss with them.

That said, it sounds like you are at least working in the right direction. Historically, their weakest link has been the OEM(Original Equipment/Manufacturer) forks they come with. And RST forks are solid.

Better idea

Yes, the fork will go on the Next. But, be sure to remove the forks before your next fishing trip. When properly used as a boat anchor, it's best to not completely submerge the forks.

Another suggestion: The tubes of the Next can be effectively used for plumbing high pressure applications. The "components" can be recycled -- the rate is presently about 60 cents per pound.

Merry Christmas.
