Powering your bike along an epic single track in the mountains or just cruising your local trails, cross country is a lifestyle you can only understand by doing it.

nice find... just wish i had ther money for them

Cant afford this. What would be a good 2nd hand fork and what would I expect to pay. Budget is £50

Or - how do I put more air in my RST 416s that I already have on my old hardtail carrera banshee?
#4
are you sure they are air sprung?

many old rst forks are elastomers
#5
What is is for? If you're building your bike from scratch out of parts?

My bike already has a springy thing at the front and the whole bike only cost half of this at Morrisons.

RST's BIN THEM!!! rather go without them lol. horrid things
This is a good deal, the recons are excellent forks and can take a beating. mine certainly did. all i did was flip out the internal springs and stick in a higher rated for 30 notes. :D
H+R added.

You could use them for building a bike from scratch or upgrading your existing forks. Top of the range forks cost IRO £500 and are for serious enthusiats & pro racers. These are good for those on a tighter budget but still want a 'proper' fork, not just a 'springy thing' at the front.

You can spend £75 on a bike from Morrisons or you can spend upwards of £3- 4k! I suppose it's the same as buying an old banger or a Ferrari - both will get you from A-B!

hell of a lot diferent though in the ferrari.. or top end bike with GOOD top end parts. they last longer are lighter make you go faster and less servicing. (im a cycle tech lol) hence why i wouldnt pay less than a G for a bike. these cheapos that are 75 notes last a year oir two and WILL be serviced within 6 mths (mostly)/ these forks are mid range level and are good enough for me to pound to death :D

A second hand fork at this price will always be a bit of a risk but for under £50 I'd look out for something of reasonable quality with fairly simple workings in decent condition, like an old Rockshox Judy or Indy. I'm still getting great service out of a pair of 1997 Indy SLs I bought on ebay a few years back for under £30 - I've never got round to replacing them since they're reliable, work great, no maintenance, and super light.

I've had a couple of pairs of '00 Rock shox judy race in the past and they were fairly good. Usually a pair or two floating about on ebay. The race ones are adjustable and lightweight. Avoid Judy TT's.
The rockshox darts are the current entry level ones but they weigh a ton.

Dont buy second hand forks. they will be shot.. you're better of saving a bit longer and buying these, you wont be dissapointed (if youre used to RSTs).. ;)

voted hot.

RS Darts are ok, can pick them up new for under 100 I think. I would save some cash and get these though, very nice forks indeed. And yes, I agree with posters above, don't buy used forks... the other problem you'll probably have is that the steerer tube has been cut too short already
