    Upgrading an Indy SL fork?

    I have acquired an Rockshok Indy SL fork, year unknown. Has no disc mount if that helps. It's too soft for me. Any recommendations on upgrading the springs? I weigh in at 155.

    Check the shops in your area to see if they have any stiffer springs/elastomers available, if not then check ebay. If still not, your up the creek without a paddle.

    I'm in a similar situation with a 97' vintage bike I'm thinking of purchasing. It has the exact same fork. I weigh in at 195. The advice I've received from a couple reputable shops is to replace it.
