I have a '95 GT Zaskar with a yellow Judy XC fork (stock equipment for the bike). I guess as you'd expect, the elastomers are going bad...maybe OK for my weight, I dunno....they felt week to the fella I bought the bike from, but he'd ridden it since new and I don't have a new one to compare to.
1. If I were to want to repair the Judy, is there still a source for elastomers? (I would guess folks here would say ditch the old technology...but I wouldn't mind getting the fork in good shape even if I do get a replacement....something cool about having all the original stuff with the bike, I guess.)
2. For a bike like that, what would be a good/comparable (weight/performance/?) new or reasonably new fork to look for as a replacement? (I know very little about suspension forks....always been on 'rigid' bikes...old MTBs or road bikes...so this is new & interesting stuff for me to learn about!)
thanks in advance.
