I have a 1998-99 Trek 970. It has a Judy XC that is totally blown. I need to also change my brakes, since they are not the V brakes. I also would like to add a little height to the front such as new riser bars etc.
I want a fork with a good amount a travel since I like bombing and hard riding (and I weigh 225+ lbs too). The rest of my bike seems plenty solid, any suggestions for what would be best in the $300 - $400 range?
Can my bike be retrofit for disc brakes or am I limited to V brakes?
Thanks for your advice....
