    suspension forks seized

    I have a set of 2009 Dart2 forks that I have been running since Oct 08. I have a new set of forks picked out, but I'm still saving up for them ($$$pendy). Meanwhile; it takes considerable force to even get them to move, and I weigh 200....so...I keep them locked out. Anybody out there know any cheap, even temporary fixes that will get me through another month?

    Here's the 2009 model tech manual: http://www.sram.com/_media/pdf/rocks.../TM_MY09_E.pdf
    Seems to me that disassembling the fork to find out why it's seizing and perhaps fix that is the way to go.
