Default Forks...

Hey You Guys,

I've been riding my 10th Anniversary a lot lately and would like to put a front end on it with some suspension. The rigid is just plain kickin my a&$ in the trails. What size should I be looking at and any suggestions? Runnin 26's...

You are lookin' for a lynching, thinking of putting a boinger on a 10th!!!

Before destroying the integrity of that beautiful ride, think about your body positioning. It looks like your saddle height is pretty low and you could use that stem as a softball bat. I bet that if you put on a shorter / more upright stem, you would take a bunch of weight off your front end and the bike could float over the terrain better. (this has worked well for me as we've grown out of the '90s and I have gotten old!)

To each there own though, beautiful bike thanks for finally giving us the pics!

Thanks for the suggestions but honestly I don't spend to much time in the saddle as I'm usually standing. I think I might just buy a full suspension bike to ride daily and clean this one up anyways! Figured that would make everyone happy....haha. Take care!
