Mountain Bike Help

my experience with motorless things is limited but i do know that the front shocks on my mountain bike are toast.

anyone have any experience rebuilding them (i've done them for motorcycles) but just trying to get a feel for what the best route may be.

thanks,

Ando :corn

I would be interested in this as well. Mine is feeling a bit soft and I would like to get em stiffened up before I sell it....just a personal preferance as mine are not blown but to me feel soft.

anybody want a trek 4300?

I will make a nice deal on it.

from my local moutain bike shop you just have to know the make and brand of forks.

mine Marzocchi, cost 30 for the seals and 20 for oil. You may have to order them though.
