OK, I pulled my (96)Scott Vertigo LSD off the hanger on Saturday, washed, tuned and rode around the driveway. I was wondering why it seemed like the steering was so quick, when i noticed that the rubber covers were compressed. The fork is at full compression, and I'll assume the MCU's are toast. I've done the research here and on other sites and know that the overwhelming consensus is to dump the Judy and get some new technology. But, as I'm sure you've guessed, I'm not sold on the that option. The low end forks I've researched are heavy (5+ pounds) and the Judy is listed at under 4#. I'm going to open her up this week and hope it's just the mcu's and am considering buying a set of Kronos springs off ebay. I can't really find any reviews or info (I know, that should be an indicator) and am wondering if anyone is familiar? My plans for downhilling or rocketing threw stoney/rocky singletrack are low right now. If they pick up, I'll be looking at a new bike in the future, but I enjoyed this rig a lot in the past, and don't see my needs or wants to be much more right now. So that's the scam! $30 for Kronos springs to revive my '96 Judy XC or some other $30 fix????? Thanks!
