I have inherited this bike from my dad. I build it for him in 95 when I worked for a local bike shop. He is too old to ride it now and its become my main MTB. I have taken it out a few times in the last month and it desperately needs a better fork. The current fork is a Rockshox Quadra 5. It sucks.
I am looking at the 09 or 10 Rockshox Tora 318 SE. Performance has them for $300 and my buddy says its pretty easy to get 20% off from them. I think that going from less than 2 inches to 4 inches of travel will relax the geometry of this bike some. That would be a nice bonus. How are these forks? Seems pretty inexpensive for what you get.
The only other mods to the bike so far is an 11-34 7 speed cassette and V brakes.
