I always knew the Indy was the bike's weakest part, but since the bike was already over my budget, swapping out the fork at the beginning wasn't an option. A few years later I was going to buy a SID, but the seller disappeared. Perhaps that was for the best because I didn't ride the bike much for some time. I'm actually surprised how well the fork is doing considering how old the elastomers are. I wish I hadn't missed out on the Englund Total Air cartridges, which would have been a relatively inexpensive way to upgrade the fork, but I now have my eye on a cheap SID from a local buyer, as well as a possible Fox on eBay. The rake/offset on my fork is definitely less than other models, even with the angled fork legs, but the slightly increased height of a new fork should partly compensate for the additional offset.
