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?

are you sure they are air sprung?

many old rst forks are elastomers

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.
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

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
