    Manitou fork spring?

    I am fixing up an old MTB for a friend of mine. A Specialized Rock Hopper with a Manitou Spyder Fork. It isn't the greatest fork, but he doesn't do serious off-roading. He just wants me to get the bike up and running in good shape for him.

    Anyway, the Spyder R fork has only one Elastomer spring on the right side. I assume it needs two (one on each side). Well, the remaing spring is shot, and I need to replace both of them. The one that came with it is yellow.

    Where can I get these for a decent price?

    What is the proper name for these springs? I searched Ebay to no avail.

    I'd call Manitou and ask them about it.

    There are many different kinds of elastomer springs with different stiffness....soft, med, hard, etc.

    "Elastomer spring" is the correct nomenclature.
