    Help with a 199x??? GT mountain bike upgrade

    Hi. I'm new to the forum.


    I'm in a similar situation as phidauex.

    http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/index.php/t-60366

    I can't identify the model of the bike.

    I acquired an old (mid 90's???) GT mountain bike I'm attempting to restore. There is a minor crack in the fork, that I need to replace, is the common steerer width 1' 1/8"? How do I determine the steerer tube length? Any suggestions for replacement?? Just looking to use this oldie as a commuter.

    Thanks.

    Just about all forks you buy new will have a long enough steerer tube that needs to be cut to size. You could just measure the one you have now and cut it to the same length or leave a little extra and use spacers incase you switch fames and want to use the same fork. Look around on Ebay and your lbs. You should be able to pick up a ridged fork or a low end suspension fork very cheep
