    Rock Shox Indy C how to rebuild details?

    I just purchased a Giant ATX 760 with a Rock Shox Indy C fork. It seems to work well on a bumpy dirt road which I ride to commute to work. I weigh 210 though and would like to put the most firm springs in it. Does it have elastomers? I can find no info on the web to describe how to work on it or what to check for as far as function goes. For commuting, would I be better off to replace the fork with a suspension corrected rigid fork? Can someone direct me to instructions on dis-assembly and how to overhaul it?
    Thanks for any info.

    Try here. http://www.sram.com/_media/techdocs/...ervice_I_D.pdf

    There may be some information in that service manual that helps.

    That fork was an average fork whenit was new 10 yrs ago....sav eup and buy a newer fork. Go on line and get a left over for whatit would costto rebuild.
    Good luck

    +1- the rebuild process on the indy would cost more than the fork is worth. For commuting, I prefer a rigid fork- if you wanted to switch it out, a regular fork would work fine on your frame(no suspension correction necessary) because the travel on your indy is so short. Put some super fat tires on the bike to smooth out the bumps.

    The Indy fork was the cheapest of the cheap. Mine wore out in just a couple of months. I pitched it and bought a better fork.
