Hello from Miami, FL

New here and searching for advice.
I own a Specialized M2 Team Edition purchased in 1994.
I recently began riding again but my girl needs a tune up.
The forks need to be pumped but no one seems to be able to do it.
The brakes need tuning but they are Suntour SE and many have never even heard of them and don't want to approach it.

Anyways I would like to retire this girl and get a new one.
I ride on the road for long distances and would love a bike that is rugged, light and pretty fast.
I prefer a bike with thicker tires than the traditional road bikes.
Not too expensive but quality and durability is a must.
I like Specialized but will purchase a different company's bike if it fits.
Any suggestions?

If anyone knows the Miami area where do you suggest I visit to see one?
Or online would suffice.

Rick

Hi Rick, I don't know much about the Stumpjumpers and the forks, but it could be that you might just need to replace the fork?

If you ask in the Bicycle Mechanics forum, they may be able to help you with both the fork and the Suntour Self-Energising brakes.


Welcome to BF!
