My first post.

I have a set of old Rock Shox Judy T2's on my bike. They are set up for someone much lighter than me. I weigh in at 250lbs +. Can I change out the spring in them to stiffen them up? I really don't want to spend much money. If I could find a set of used forks that would be better for $100 or less I may consider it. But I would like it if I could just upgrade mine.

I am just getting back into biking and losing some weight. I have been on some pretty good trails that were slightly above my level of riding abillity and I had a blast! I can see my self getting way crazy into biking again.

From the time I learned to ride till I was 17 I rode my bike EVERYWHERE! Now I'm 35 and starting to remember why I loved it so much.

I don't know about how old that fork is but you should be able to find stiffer springs if they are still made.
By the way, they shouldn't cost more than 40 bucks.

Give Rock Shox / SRAM a call. They should be able to point you in the right direction. One place that always seems to have odd parts is www.bikeman.com so give them a try too. You may have to call them though, they probably won't list older parts like that.
