What should I do? part II

I went back to the bike shop. They have this parts table in the back of the store where they sell unwanted parts, old parts and parts that are over stocked. On that table they have a few suspension forks for $25 - $40, brand new, just over stocked, they only charge $15 to put it on. These forks are in great shape, quality brands, and cost fare less than something ordered from and cadalog. I know someone who works there, so I know there not gonna screaw me, I'v been shopping there for almost 15 years.

Ask about a warranty (from the shop and the mfr) and an owner's manual. If they provide both, go for it! You'd be stupid not to!

Also make sure they aren't 1" steer tubes. If they are that cheap they may not even fit current standards.
