    Fork question

    Does anyone know if the fork that comes on the new Schwinn Madison is 1" or 1 1/8", and if you can purchase just the fork anywhere? I like the fork even though the rest of the bike is sub par.

    I have no idea about the size, but I doubt that they will sell the fork separately. Your best bet would probably be to place wanted ads in Craigslist to see if anybody upgraded their fork and wants to get rid of the stock one.

    if they aren't the exact same fork, they at least use the same crown as the one spicer sells. i wouldn't be surprised if these are the same fork. spicer sells theirs as a 1 or a 1 1/8"

    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    Just curious, what do you think makes the rest of the bike sub par? I would trade any of my bikes in for a 08 Madison in a heartbeat.
