    Upgrade Old Bike

    I have an Old Sterling Mountain Bike. It has a fixed front fork. I want to put on a front shock fork so I can give it to my son to ride. The bike has some good components on it so I thought it would be a good bike for him since he is moving up from a 24" bike. It has the old style quill stem though, which has made it hard to find a replacement fork. Any ideas? It may be cost prohibitive to change out too.
    Thanks. Nick

    you would probably have to change the stem also...and maybe the headset. possibly brakes also...you may want to fix it to work the way it is...or buy a new bike.

    I mean unless your just looking for a project...then go for it!

    That was another possibility too. Make him ride it at least one season to fully appreciate what I had to go through Kind of like when I had to walk to school up hill both ways in the snow and now they get a ride to and from school everyday.
