Trek fork and brake options?
I ride my Trek 7200 hybrid on pavement only. Getting to dislike the fork, espescially how spongy it is when I stand up out of the saddle. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a lockout.
So where can I source a rigid fork, for example one from a Trek 7000?
Nothing on the Trek site that I could find. Also did a quick search and came up empty.
The brakes are also completely useless. I've badgered the LBS several times about it, finally got them to tighten it up a LITTLE bit, but when I got bar ends last week, yep you guessed it....the mechanic "readjusted" the damn things - worse than ever.
Dammit I want some REAL brakes :)
Anyone got any disc brake conversion advice?
Moreover, how much money would I be looking at spending here? Might I be better off just selling the bike (esp since I have a road bike on layaway) and getting another hybrid better suited to my needs, for example one of the FX series?
