It's not cost effective to upgrade the forks on those comfort hybrids. I have one and after a year was in good enough condition to consider another bike. I kept the comfort hybrid as an errand bike and got an early 1990s rigid fork mountain bike that I ride most of the time now. In August I'll have ridden the second bike for a year and will begin to consider a road bike with drop bars for a bit more efficiency.

But I'm keeping the comfort hybrid because it's a great errand and cruising bike, especially on some of the rougher roads around here. It's not fast but neither am I.
